Sounds to me like he hit one of your soft spots?

Thomas Sowell is not ignorant or evil. He gives well-reasoned commentary on the topics of the day. He's not a big Obama fan, that's true, but he can back up all of his assertions with facts (and reasonable people can disagree with him and that does not preclude him from being reasonable). Your comment kinda proves his point. " It's not a big stretch from this sort of mind to the one that gunned down 6 yr olds in their school..." That is the most evil thing I've heard today. Merry Christmas.

I made the mistake of reading this on Christmas night. Dear God; how sad this man must be. I wonder if he really believes what he's saying. Or is he devious and manipulative, like a Hitler? Is he ignorant or conniving? Either way, it's evil. Yet, if a person is simply paranoid and ignorant rathr than deliberately conniving, don't we have to forgive them? That's where I'm stumped. If he's ignorant/paranoid and not deliberate, then can he be evil? Evil can be the inadvertent byproduct of ignorance is what I come to conclude.. So, he's not an evil person but his paranoia combined w/ ignorance makes him an evil force, unfortunately. It's not a big stretch from this sort of mind to the one that gunned down 6 yr olds in their school...

We,re not ignorant, @sswipe. And owedowngrade is a socialist, just like Hitler was. hell, they both use similar verbal tactics. Actually, owedowngrade was (is?) a committed communist. Particularly when he was writing his perverse poetry about that card carrying commie "frank".

It's just so manipulative -- Sowell takes advantage of ignorant people with his so-called soft-spoken "gentle" words and then he says something so typical, so predictable of Conservative hatespeak that it's just a big yawn.

It just turns into another wailing rightwinger bawling about Obama and comparing him to the worst of humanity. Sowell is old news, victims ideology -- destined for a legacy of stupidity and hatefulness.
Random thoughts on the passing scene:

When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, "What you don't know would make a big book." Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, "What you don't know would fill more books than the Encyclopedia Britannica." At least half of our society's troubles come from know-it-alls, in a world where nobody knows even 10 percent of all.

Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation's resources over to politicians --...
