Fables For Adults

by Thomas Sowell - September 15th, 2009 - Townhall.com

Many years ago, as a small child, I was told one of those old-fashioned fables for children. It was about a dog with a bone in his mouth, who was walking on a log across a stream.

The dog looked down into the water and saw his reflection. He thought it was another dog with a bone in his mouth-- and it seemed to him that the other dog's bone was bigger than his. He decided that he was going to take the other dog's bone away and opened his mouth to attack.

It is with simple stories like this one that Thomas Sowell teaches us all about the important things in life. He must be tearing his hair out right now, as he watches the nation we both love and admire going down a road to a system that requires us to believe that the dog was right to drop his bone. Insanity. Nothing but insanity.
