Oh I am quite familiar with Uncle Sowells completely unoriginal adherence to “bootstrap” conservatism. I can understand his appeal to people like you who don’t seem to understand or accept any worldview that is outside your own. Sowell (like you) cannot conceive of an existence outside of their own experience. It’s the height of arrogance and ignorance. Is he an acceptable author? sure. But there’s a reason why he’s a conservative icon and it doesn’t have to do with his intellectual rigor.
I mean I read a call of his about climate change that had all the intelligence of your average message board post
“der, they switched the name from global warming to climate change”
”der, they forget ahoy clouds” (ignoring the climate affects cloud formation too)
Sowell does this a lot , Substituting opinion for fact and then arguing against those “facts”.
