Sowell’s common sense in pictures

Posted: September 2, 2012 at 1:00 pm   /   by

A while back, I received two images on the same day, sent to me by completely unrelated individuals, giving a quote from Thomas Sowell.

It’s funny how basic logic, expressed in a pithy quote, can pack such a wallop. These come from one of the most accomplished economists alive, and yet they express a common sense that any of us can easily grasp.

The first is more general, but it is a perspicacious indictment of the leftward intellectual trend of the last 150 years. The second is more specific, and brings up an inescapable flaw in the thinking (such as it is) of Obamacare’s proponents.

Take a moment and really think about these!
