Dr. Thomas Sowell and a Conflict of Visions (Chapter 1 of 5)

One of the great intellects of our time, Thomas Sowell, describes the critical differences between interests and visions. Interests, he says, are articulated by people who know what their interests are and what they want to do about them. Visions, however, are the implicit assumptions by which people operate. This idea elevates to politics, where visions are either constrained or unconstrained.

"A powerful antidote for people suffering from the dumbed-down bleating that passes for modern education. Go, Dr. Sowell, go!" The Vorthos Forum
