Sowell on #BLM Movement: ‘I’m Afraid No Lives Really Matter to Them’

“What’s painfully tragic already, and it’s only going to get worse if it continues, is this notion that only black lives matter; because black lives are the ones that are being lost more so than any other lives in this great crusade against the police.” Continue reading

Race Relations and Law Enforcement

Blacks ultimately must help themselves. They must develop the same attitudes and behaviors and habits that other groups had to develop to rise in America. And to the extent that a social policy, however well-intentioned, interferes with this self-development, it does more harm than good. Continue reading

Moral Bankruptcy

There was a time when common sense and common decency counted for something. Educators felt a responsibility to equip students with solid skills that could take them anywhere they wanted to go in later life – enable them to become doctors, engineers or whatever they wanted to be. Too many of today’s “educators” see students as a captive audience for them to manipulate and propagandize. Continue reading

Government Surveillance and the Loss of Trust

Amid all the heated cross-currents of debate about the National Security Agency’s massive surveillance program, there is a growing distrust of the Obama administration that makes weighing the costs and benefits of the NSA program itself hard to assess.

To cite hard evidence that places obsessed with diversity have worse race relations is to risk getting yourself labeled an incorrigible racist. Free thinking is not free. Continue reading

Redistribution as Slavery

By advancing the welfare state and income redistribution through class warfare, one of the basic intellectually inconsistent ironies of liberalism is exposed: the indefensible practice of trying to defend equality and the dignity of man by violating the human rights of those very people you claim to be defending. The hypocrisy of the left knows no boundaries. Continue reading
