Sowell on Entitlements

Posted: Nov 27, 2005 3:23 PM

I just finished watching the second part of the Thomas Sowell interview on Fox, and loved his closing quote.

"Why are other people bound to do for you what you won't do for yourself?"

He always covers so much ground in one short quote or one short column. I could have used this exact quote a couple times this weekend when I was trying to explain to a childhood friend why socialism remains a terrible idea despite the fact that he thinks "Hugo Chavez has some pretty good ideas." Arrrggghhh, you gotta love a liberal college town.
