This problem started a long time before Clinton. When the schools were dumbed-down and morality lessons in schools were changed to things like "Sally has two dads", that is where things went down hill. A current college graduate in any subject would have a hard time passing an 8th grade test in that subject from the early 1900's. In order for people to understand Dr. Sowell's arguments they at least need to understand some economicss, history, and a little basic math. It is simply not taught today. Second, kids are not taught any absolute truths, all morals are relative to whatever culture a person claims to be from. With no standards for education, and no standards of morality, it is nearly impossible to deliver a conservative message.
