Thomas Sowell, Retiree at 86

Gary North recently wrote a brief article, commemorating the greatest living economist. Coming from North, that is high praise indeed!

I am greatly lacking for time, so I will not be able to plow though Sowell’s work, looking for gems, insights, bon mots, and hard truths to reflect on. But if you are, you can buy his numerous books with titles such as

  • Basic Economics
  • Wealth, Poverty and Economics
  • Black Rednecks and White Liberals
  • A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles
  • The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy
  • The Quest for Cosmic Justice
  • Intellectuals and Race
  • Dismantling America: and other controversial essays
  • The Einstein Syndrome: Bright Children Who Talk Late
  • Ethnic America: A History
  • Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One
  • Knowledge And Decisions

as well as go through his articles on

My farewell column

Monday, December 26th, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — Even the best things come to an end. After enjoying a quarter of a century of writing this column for Creators Syndicate, I have decided to stop. Age more…

America has been fooled by ‘diversity’ fraud

Monday, December 19th, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — Nothing so epitomizes the politically correct gullibility of our times as the magic word “diversity.” The wonders of diversity are proclaimed from the media, extolled in the academy more…

Will GOP put bipartisanship above Constitution?

Monday, December 12th, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — We are now in a kind of political no-man’s-land between an administration on its way out and a new administration taking shape. Predictions are always risky – and more…

Leftists pay no price when they’re wrong

Monday, December 5th, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — Sometimes life forces us to make decisions, even when we don’t have enough information to know how the decision will turn out. The risks may be even greater more…

The case of the missing black punters

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — This is a football story with both political and legal implications. It was fourth down in a National Football League game, and the punting team came onto the more…

Backward-looking ‘progressives’

Monday, November 21st, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — People who call themselves “progressives” claim to be forward-looking, but a remarkable amount of the things they say and do are based on looking backward. One of the more…

Another smackdown of smug elite

Monday, November 14th, 2016 by Thomas Sowell — The good news is that we dodged a bullet in this election. The bad news is that we don’t know how many other bullets are coming, or from more…

It could be well worth the while of the careful researcher: “Time + Work + Goal = Results.”

Christianity will not triumph in America (or the world) until God’s people start to think and read, write and build.

Sending money to Republicans does not cut it.

Tithing to the local church brings blessings, but that merely makes you richer. There are plenty of rich liberals as well as rich conservatives, rich atheists and rich Christians: but it is the rich liberals and the rich atheists who are respected and influential, while rich conservatives and rich Christians are contemptuously ignored and completely irreverent in today’s world.

Tithes are Necessary, Money is Necessary, but this is Not Enough. There must be work, there must be self-discipline, there must be a long-term, multi-generational commitment to victory.

Let the Jews – who work and build, make money and write books – serve as an inspiration. Learn from the best, and do better.

Why should Jesus Christ have to settle for anything less?

Yes, the race-focused people will claim that no one will ever beat the Jews, because of their superior blood lines when it comes to IQ and money-making.

I don’t believe it for a minute: prosperity, influence, success, and even eternal life comes from obeying God, not some Darwinian/atheistic fixation on DNA patterns!

We all know that the Asians are cleaning out the Jews in the top-tier universities. And, as Jews forget the Commandments and grow incapable of doing the capitalist thing, I am confident that Christians — if they are motivated, and if they want to win — can also out-compete them in the capitalist side of things, too!

The Nazi failures swear that we can’t possibly stand on our own two feet, competing on a level playing field, without some kind of Leader to lead us to total defeat victory. The pre-mills and amillennialists swear that we can only lose no matter what happens in the world, so we can only run and cry and weep and suffer.

I disagree.

More importantly, Jesus Christ disagrees: Satan’s head lies crushed underneath His heel, so why are we fleeing in fear from a dead snake?

Forget genetics. Turn to the Law, and win!
