Former Marxist Says Government Is Incapable of Accomplishing What Socialists Hope.

Never heard of Thomas Sowell until a few days ago. A brilliant man who has much to share from history.

This phrase articulated every suspicion I have had about  using government as our hope, as the society changer.

“realized the government was nowhere close to being capable of doing what people on the left wanted the government to do.

The following is form IJR RED

At that point, (Dave) Rubin asked Sowell,

“So then what was your wake-up to what was wrong with that line of thinking?”

“Facts,” Sowell quickly replied.

And during an interview on Fox News several years ago, the conservative thinker said his job with the government “was enough” for him to rethink his political leanings because he,

“realized the government was nowhere close to being capable of doing what people on the left wanted the government to do.

Sowell, who worked for the U.S. Department of Labor, went on to say the country “would be lucky” if the federal government didn’t “make things worse.”

He explained the difference between liberals and conservatives this way: “[Liberals] are for helping people that are disadvantaged, as they put it. Whereas I think conservatives want to stop people from being disadvantaged.”
