Occupy Wall Street by Thomas Sowell

Truly a great read. Most intellectuals can see what the problems are in this country but no one is doing anything about it...

A great article. One of the most intellectual black human beings in this country, hits it right on the head ! ! !

Occupy Wall Street by Thomas Sowell
By Dr. Thomas Sowell

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 of 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: of 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 always rejected. It is an America where our founding documents have been now 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 all other loyal liberal/Communist Party members will live in opulent splendor.
It is the America that Obama and the Democrat Party have now created with all 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 3 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 that's so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it."

Dr. Thomas Sowell (A National Humanities Medal Winner)

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are out numbered by the people that vote for a living.
 Thomas Sowell from Wikipedia: 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 conservative and 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 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.
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.

He has zero understanding of the problem and just because he is black doesn't make that ok.

I agree wholeheartedly.
"he advocates laissez-faire economics and writes from a conservative and libertarian perspective"
Laissez-faire is the same "free market" bullshit that created the modern slave markets in the first place. Its actually incompatible with the idea of liberty. Laissez-faire literally means "Leave us be", or deregulation of the economy. That's madness. That's precisely how less than 150 companies have control of 100% of the money in the world. It means no law, every man for himself and promotes gangsters to consolidate and take over.
"worked for think tanks such as the Urban Institute"
I wonder how many of his ideas have been stolen and used against his own principles. The poor bastard doesn't know that he's just as much a slave as we are.

It isn't the system that is at fault, it is man and his greed for wealth and power, such as Sowell names. NO SYSTEM can function under conditions with "leaders" who are self-serving, controlling and evil. Until man learns to control and manage his own emotions, nothing will work! That is why we were commanded to live by every word of God. At least while the United States operated under the pretense of being "one nation under God", all was fine! Now there is no pretense and all HELL has broken loose!

Dr. Sowell is right on. Just take a good look in THE BOOK (Bible) of the one who created you, that tells us how to live and treat each other, as well as telling us how to be a leader.

THE BOOK also lets us know that whoever operates with greed, calling evil good and good evil, taking from the one who works hard and giving it to the ones who just want a handout, murdering babies, thinking that the Creator created Adam and Seve instead of Adam and Eve, giving weapons and $ to our enemies, power hungry - having to have control are TOTALLY OUR OF CONTROL and will end up in a VERY UNPLEASANT place for a very long time, unless they do a 180% turnaround. We need Divine intervention!!!!

He went to one of the best colleges in America to study economics...I honestly think he understands the problem better than a bunch of kids who dont know the difference between a stock and a bond.If you want to see real protesters look at the civil and womens rights movements or even the American Revolution.

All I see in the Occupy wallstreet protesters is spoiled brats stomping their feet because they have realized that life is sometimes hard and unfair.

Dr. Sowell only wrote the part in quotes at the very end. He IS a great guy, though.
