If something is true in a single case, it will continue being true if you repeat it millions of times. Your thinking is, to put it very kindly, flawed. It is funny (ironic, actually) that you follow that incredibly ridiculous statement with the mention of "cartoons, crayon drawings, and coloring books." Have you not considered the possibility that the target of all such devices and simplifications might be people like you?

After WWII, most of the economic controls that the government had imposed on the economy relaxed. We went from a de facto command economy back to a market economy. That is what boosted the economy! Not to mention that WWII left American infrastructure and industry relatively untouched, whereas large parts of Europe needed reconstruction. Where do you think that those European countries got much of the materials and machines to rebuild? That's right, you guessed it, from the US of A. During the war, however, the economy improved only in the sense that unemployment went down (because of the need for enormous production of tanks, bullets, ships, and all of the other materials and weapon systems needed in the war). This did not improve the real economy (the standard of living of the average citizen) because even though people were being paid there were not many consumer's goods to buy. (Lots of things were rationed).

This opinion piece is so politically incorrect that most leftist will take a glance at the title and gasp and avert their eyes, lest their own conscience accused them of blasphemy! This is the problem with political correctness; it has made it almost impossible to speak the truth and state the obvious. It takes somebody with intelligence and courage to stand up against this nonsense. It takes a Thomas Sowell.

I understand what you're saying and I understand on which side of the argument you are. However, do not make the same error that most economic illiterates makes, which is to think that "cost" refers to money only. Cost refers to delays, shortages, reduced quality, missed opportunities, etc., as well. This is why Sowell rethorical question asks underlines costs.
If you're not going to stay on topic, go opine somewhere else! You didn't even stay on the same topic as your previous comment, let alone the topic of this column.
WTF??? Did you read the column?
How ironic!!!
aintnothing...The first abolitionist leaders were Christian. You could say that they were not conservative; however, the Christian values that conservatives hold now have not changed from the values that those abolitionists held. What's more, Christian conservatives now decry abortion as the killing of a life. What if 100 years from now, the view that abortion is murder were to become the norm? Would people like you (a progressive, I presume) say "...but they were not really conservatives..."?
Excellent article! I loved the last Batman movie; one would have to be blind to not realize how pro-capitalist and anti-socialist the movie is. Bane, the villain, uses the ideology of the left to attain his (more sinister) goals, goading people to spread fear and mayhem in the name of equality. As I was watching it, I could not help thinking that this was a parody of leftist revolutionary movements where people are pawns of "charismatic" leaders who in reality couldn't care less for them.
