  • Thomas Sowell (born June 30, 1930) is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author. A National Humanities Medal winner, he advocates laissez-faire economics and writes from a libertarian perspective. He is currently a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Sowell was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Harlem, New York. He dropped out of high school, and served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. He had received a bachelor's degree from Harvard University in 1958 and a master's degree from Columbia University in 1959.  In 1968, he earned his doctorate degree in economics from the University of Chicago. Dr. Sowell has served on the faculties of several universities, including Cornell and University of California, Los Angeles, and worked for "think tanks" such as the Urban Institute. Since 1980 he has worked at the Hoover Institution. He is the author of more than 30 books.
    ____________________________________________________
    The following is written by Dr. Sowell, and I quote:
     
    "The current Occupy Wall Street movement is the best illustration to date of what President Barack Obama's America looks like. It is an America where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.
    "It is an America where history is rewritten to honor dictators, murderers and thieves. It is an America where violence, racism, hatred, class warfare and murder are all promoted as acceptable means of overturning the American civil society.
    "It is an America where humans have been degraded to the level of animals: defecating in public, having sex in public, devoid of basic hygiene. It is an America where the basic tenets of a civil society, including faith, family, a free press and individual rights, have been rejected. It is an America where our founding documents have been shredded and, with them, every person's guaranteed liberties.
    "It is an America where, ultimately, great suffering will come to the American people, but the rulers like Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, liberal college professors, union bosses and other loyal liberal/Communist Party members will live in opulent splendor.
    "It is the America that Obama and the Democratic Party have created with the willing assistance of the American media, Hollywood , unions, universities, the Communist Party of America, the Black Panthers and numerous anti-American foreign entities.
    "Barack Obama has brought more destruction upon this country in four years than any other event in the history of our nation, but it is just the beginning of what he and his comrades are capable of.
    "The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another step in their plan for the annihilation of America .
    "Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it."

  • I got that in an email from a neocon republican, Judeo-
    Christian, extreme novus ordite who daily sends me pro-military, beware of jihad, anti-Obama chain emails that ALWAYS have a pro-Israel sentiment or as in this case a 'conservative' message delivered by a noble black person. Always. The same pattern. It is more for propaganda purposes than anything and originates from a Zionist source.

    Next week I expect to get daily MLK tributes which I will delete as spam.

  • As intelligent as you are Matthew, and as many things I agree with you on, I just don't get how you buy into this NeoCon crap. :/

  • Indeed. We should be just as aware of the source of the message as the message itself, and just as critical.

  • Hold on a second guys. There is no need to go looking for a Neocon conspiracy underneath every rock.

    Whatever the source of this message, there is absolutely nothing in it which is untrue. I think the bit about "a free press and individual rights" being necessary for the functioning of civil society, is too vague and needs to be qualified from a Catholic perspective; however, the rest of the article presents nothing to quarrel with.

    Occupy Wall Street really is a disgusting anarchist revolt. Occupy Wall Street is a foretaste of hell.
    Confronting modernity from the depths of the human spirit, in communion with Christ the King.

    But I'm not talking about a NeoCon conspiracy MoW. I'm just on the same page with SedeTrad ("I don't find it much different than Bush's America."). I don't believe that one politician is better than the other; Republican or Democrat.

    To pretend that defending the so-called 'conservative movement' is a waste of time and its a movement set up by people, in my opinion, as a distraction. I'd rather spend my time defending Truth, than waste energy fighting for a party (or against another) that leads one down the same road anyways.
