Point Of No Return

Looking back at the history of tragic times often reveals that many -- or most -- of the people of those times were often preoccupied with things that look trivial, or even pathetic, in view of the catastrophe looming over them. Will later generations looking back at our times see a similar blindness, and even frivolousness, in the face of mortal dangers?

I keep posting articles from Thomas Sowell. The reason is simple. He is one of the best writers I know and arguably the smartest man in America. This article is amazingly prescient. It is also extremely frightening.
