Thomas Sowell is a very smart man. And every idea he presents in these three paragraphs is wrong. Every question he asks can be answered with almost no brain activity needed. I’ll explain why.
Those of us who like to believe that human beings are rational can sometimes have a hard time trying to explain what is going on in politics.
