Thomas Sowell

"Without a moral framework, there is nothing left but immediate self-indulgence by some and the path of least resistance by others. Neither can sustain a free society."

"I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money."

"People who pride themselves on their "complexity" and deride others for being "simplistic" should realize that the truth is often not very complicated. What gets complex is evading the truth."
