  1. If hero's come in human form, Mr. Sowell is at the top of my/any list. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your candor. Good luck and good health in your retirement…lol…

  2. Thomas Sowell is a rare breed of an individual an honest intellectual someone that cares more that the individual breathing listening to his words goes out and does their own research instead of an intellectual pandering to the people

  3. "When did you buy your first pair of pleated pants?"

    "Oh heavens. It was June 23rd of 1947 on a slightly overcast day, about 80 degrees, and I was at the corner of West and Main looking East, and saw a sign at Westman's advertising pleated pants for 75 cents."

    I'm just making this up, but his recall is astounding. I can't remember what I had for lunch.

  4. Thomas Sowell is one of the best humans.

  5. Valuations are subjective. Nothing objective on how much one pays for anything. Therefore, free markets are essential for valuations.

    How can human value anything (including other humans and himself) without markets? In its rudimentary form markets are voluntary exchange..

    This explains rise of beastly tendencies around the times of world wars. There was unprecedented INTERFERENCE in free markets then. Humans HAD to turn insane and they did..

  6. bless this man's soul. some one we could all strive towards as individuals.

  7. Even in this brief interview Reveals insight.

  8. What a great interview of a great man. Have a great retirement (when it finally comes) Dr. Sowell. You have taught me how to think which is a burden but also a benefit.

    "There aren't solutions, only better or worse trade-offs" – T. Sowell.

  17. Lol, so Sowell got his start thanks to a good old socialist library.

  18. Among many other people.. I discovered Dr. Sowell a few years back.. And I cannot emphasize enough to sharing this with the youth.. Just be straight up, and ask them to open their mind.. Plant the seed, and walk away..

  26. PRAYING Jesus Christ, Jesus show yourself mighty to your people, Lord there seems to be no way out, no way to fix things, no ways of solution, but Jesus you are the solution, you are the truth, you are the love and forgiveness, you are the author and finisher of all great things. Jesus if you can raise a nation up and take it down in a day, then Jesus can you not heal our nation and our people.Yes you can,we praise the name of Jesus. Jesus, quickly reveal yourself to us, that is best for each one of us, touch us the only place that you know and can touch, Jesus can you not minister individually to each person, the only way that they can be ministered to,. Jesus are you not greater than any and all calamity and evil, Jesus where a man sees no way out, your spirit testifies that you Jesus, you are the only way out. Jesus you are the author and finisher of all things, great and small. Jesus help us receive your perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of the cross. Jesus you told me that if we could fully receive and understand the love and forgiveness of the cross, we would be transformed as a new spirit, a useful witness for Christ Jesus. Jesus we pray that you answer this prayer, that we receive THE FULL PORTION,of your perfect love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.Jesus we praise your perfect love and forgiveness. Jesus we pray for personal and professional revival Lord Jesus not only does it have to happen in our heart, it has to happen in our family and in our workplace,,, Lord bring us to where your people are, there's no greater ministry then in our own families in our own workplace, Jesus show us the way to your fullness. Jesus you said, to pray for the greatest gift to prophesy to strengthen, encourage and comfort our people, to help raise them up. Jesus we repent of godless chatter, a lack of faith. Jesus we need the faith the size of a mustard seed to plant our faith at the altar,Jesus you will grow our faith. Jesus help us be the great communicators of your love and forgiveness, your faithfulness. Jesus Christ we pray that you come quickly, we need you and praise your mighty name, Jesus our Lord and Savior. Jesus come quickly, Jesus we cry out for repentant heart and spirit, seeking the perfect love and forgiveness, found only in Christ Jesus. Jesus is not the simple gospel, can be as simple as, the perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Jesus is this not available to all people saved and unsaved. Jesus we pray for this great awakening, correction, direction pointing to Christ Jesus, as Lord and Savior. The name of Jesus is above all names, the name of Jesus identifies the God we serve, the God that can save, forgive us of our sins, and love us into eternity now and forever. Jesus cannot the zeal of the Lord accomplish this great revival, harvest this great harvest and free our people, from captivity of the world and the evil one. Jesus not all is lost, but always gained, we hear that this is the greatest time and harvest, that the world will ever see. Jesus, Jesus, quickly come. Jesus we are standing in victory and not in defeat, because the victory was won on the cross let us praise your great name the name above all names, Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord, amen and amen. I AMen

  27. He doesn't look his age, proving the adage black don't crack.

  28. Love how he always starts his sentences with, “Oh my gosh”, “Oh Heavens”, and “Oh my goodness.”

  29. A great man and a great American man.

  30. Listening to and reading Thomas Sowell changed my life.

  31. One of the few people I've encountered in my life or from media that has a way of making me feel that I owe it to myself to be a better man and aspire to learn and develop more cogent thought and understanding of the things that matter.

    Thank you Mr. Sowell, I appreciate your works and wisdom. I hope that your moral and intellectual legacy thrives and lives on in the hearts and minds of generations to come.

  32. If you're so desperate for grievances that you have to go back in history to find them, will that says something… Well put, Dr Sowell.

  33. An excellent citizen, contributing a lot with his books in Brazil, wich is a Nation that absolutely need to acess the rich information of his researchs. Thanks indeed Dr. Thomas Sowell.

  34. The man is a national treasure.

  35. "Treating the Past as if it's just the Present taking place in earlier times".

  36. Sowell is amazing. A truly honest man in every respect. I know of few people I can say that about. What a life.

  37. 87 and still ongoing. God bless you for a great legacy.

  38. What a sellout.. Smfh

  39. Honestly, my heart will feel pain the day this man passes. A man ive never met. A man i dont know.

    The world will lose one helluva reasonable straight forward incredibly intelligent man that day.

  40. I hope I look as good as sowell when I'm 86.

  41. Dr. Sowell is the best. Period!!! Thank you for being who you are.

  42. Listening to him does wonders for my mental health, I can even stand a few minutes a day of CNN.

  43. And he said: Go and tell this people—Hear ye indeed, but they understood not; and see ye indeed, but they perceived not.

    Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes—lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted and be healed.

    Then said I: Lord, how long? And he said: Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate;

    And the Lord have removed men far away, for there shall be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

  44. To be sure, Thomas Sowell is an intellectual hero and a damn nice man. My regret is discovering him so late!

  45. No, No! I love and admire him the most. And I have All the Empirical data to prove it!! 😉
