Burke And Obama

by Thomas Sowell - May 29th, 2009 -

The other day I sought a respite from current events by re-reading some of the writings of 18th century British statesman Edmund Burke. But it was not nearly as big an escape as I had thought it would be.

When Burke wrote of his apprehension about "new power in new persons," I could not help think of the new powers that have been created by which a new President of the United States -- a man with zero experience in business -- can fire the head of General Motors and tell banks how to run their businesses.

Brilliant article. It is one more example of why I have, for 40 years, considered Thomas Sowell the smartest man in America. If only we had more people who would read the practical and intelligent advise of Thomas Sowell, perhaps we would not have had 52% of our nation vote for the raving lunacy of the Magic Marxist Messiah.
