    destined to repeat it.

    a glib and warped man, who led them to degradation and destruction.
    We know who the destroyers are and it's not the Democrats. Mountaintop Removal, Strip And Longwall Mining, Gas Fracking, An American Tragedy!

    This sowell guy is an idiot. He probably got his BA with the GI Bill, although he'll go along with his cronies and approve of benefit cuts for others.

    I think sowell drank too much of that electric kool-aid back in the sixties.

    Education is not always consistent with intelligence. Some people are just good at memorizing. It doesn't mean they understand what they read. Let us not forget timothy leary  was a well educated Harvard professor. And we all know how that worked out.

      Leary by contrasting him with Sowell it makes me wonder how much you've studied either of them. I mean, Sowell fills in on talk radio for many of the biggest names on the right and spends the whole time saying worse things than quoted here.

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

        He's the guy who told a generation of young people that a hard core drug like LSD was a good thing.

        I know, I was there. I never liked LSD tried it twice, swore I'd never do that again.

        Just saying, education does not equate intelligence.

        Like; "tune in, turn on, drop out", That wasn't very good advice.

        Guys like leary got famous and a lot of young people suffered!

        I know a girl who jumped out a third floor window onto cement while taking LSD. She was in a body cast for over a year. I don't know if she ever fully recovered.

        And guys like sowell get rich and famous selling us bull too. There's the comparison.

      He was both very cool and a man on a mission.  For a while he was into computers.

      He ended up Timothy Leary, a great man.

      Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.
