Doubling Down on Dr. Sowell...

Image result for Thomas Sowell

I confess, I like Professor Thomas Sowell.

I may not always agree...though mostly, I do, but I greatly respect his unconventional thinking. He always has an interesting take on things.

Here's a quote, I DO agree with; "Those who want to take our money and gain power over us have discovered the magic formula: Get us envious or angry at others and we will surrender, in installments, not only our money, but our freedom. The most successful dictators of the 20th century — Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao — all used this formula and now class warfare politicians here are doing the same."

It's been the same throughout the ages. Power corrupts and politicians ALL seek ultimate power, but realized early on, they needed a crutch.

Initially it was religion and governments polluted and corrupted religions, turning them into a tool to gain power.

Today's modern governments have partnered with business and industry to effect the same result.

Government pollutes everything it touches.
