"The land of the free - we've got an army marching around the world under the banner of freedom, and yet, we are the most un-free society, in terms of institutions of the deprivation of liberty, of incarceration. The incidents of incarceration is higher in the United States than elsewhere in the world."

The Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Dr. Thomas Sowell (Economist and Author) about his new book “Discrimination & Disparities.” They dive into Dr. Sowell’s Marxist past, free speech on college campuses, the role of government, minimum wage laws, his experience as a black conservative, debunking systemic racism, and more.

Such a legend!!! thumbsup

It's always great to have some of Thomas Sowell talks -- it's outstanding that he is nearly 90yrs and he's still smart and quick thinking, eloquent and always writing and selling books.

    In the second chapter of How to Be an Antiracist (2019), Ibram X. Kendi defines an “antiracist” as “[o]ne who is expressing the idea that racial groups are equals and none needs developing, and is supporting policy that reduces racial inequity.” The rule seems basic and sensible until it’s actually applied: If one honestly expresses the idea that racial groups are equals and that none needs developing, then one cannot support policies reducing racial inequities, as it negates the very belief one is required to hold and express. If one supports policies reducing racial inequities, then he implicitly confesses his belief that the racial groups in question are not equals.

 Ibram X. Kendi goes by peace as Thomas Paine did:

"I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace."
