Liberals and Progressives, especially those making their respective nuts by indoctrinating America’s youth in academia, love to rant about “Diversity.”
It’s Called Moral Turpitude
Dr. Thomas Sowell, Ph.D, one of the rare men of both learning and wisdom, provides the American people with the nigh on perfect response to such dogmatic ravings by Leftist academics.
I will go one step further, however, and point out that this level of hypocrisy meets the definition of moral turpitude and in most colleges and universities such moral turpitude is solid ground for dismissal and even removal of tenure.
It will take long, hard, and frustrating work but we, the People can break the Liberal magisterium by breaking the teachers, professors, and school administrators that make it up.

Recently, economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author, Thomas Sowell penned and article entitled “Meaningful Work.” In it he lambasts what passes for education these days, mainly because it no longer seams to include basic common sense and the survival skills needed to cope in the world.
Sowell seems especially concerned about how the “intelligentsia’s” utter lack of realism and common sense endangers society as a whole due to their promulgated false and worthless ideas that have no place in the real world.
The educated elites’ refrain that what low-income young people needed was “meaningful work” is one of the things that Sowell is warning America about in his article.
It was painful, for example, to see an internationally renowned scholar say that what low-income young people needed was “meaningful work.” But this is a notion common among educated elites, regardless of how counterproductive its consequences may be for society at large, and for low-income youngsters especially.
What is “meaningful work”?
The underlying notion seems to be that it is work whose performance is satisfying or enjoyable in itself. But if that is the only kind of work that people should have to do, how is garbage to be collected, bed pans emptied in hospitals or jobs with life-threatening dangers to be performed?
And therein lies one of the biggest failings with (mis)educated elite – their patronizing arrogance. It’s their firmly held belief that low-income young people – really just a dog-whistle for young Black males – need to be provided with “meaningful” jobs in order for them to behave properly. And, of course, the jobs that they currently are qualified for aren’t “meaningful” because they don’t meet some criterion of the (mis)educated elite.
What the fucking Hell is “meaningful work” anyway?
The Liberals’ idea of race relations and mitigating the racism that they see everywhere – except in the mirror or in the eyes of non-Whites – has always centered on accommodation, appeasement, excuses, and lowering standards in order to foster an equality of result. This has, in general, had poor results but was especially harmful to everyone when they applied it to creditworthiness.
Government agencies, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to the Federal Reserve leaned on lenders to lower lending standards, and the Department of Justice threatened prosecutions for discrimination if the racial makeup of people approved for mortgage loans did not match their preconceptions.
It worked. In fact, it worked so well that many blacks got loans that they could not have gotten otherwise.
Now the statistics tell us, belatedly, that blacks lost out, big time, from this “favor” done for them by politicians.
Reality being what it is, these Blacks who were handed loans that they didn’t except by grace of their skin color and Liberal stupidity qualify for, were “overrepresented” among those who later defaulted on their mortgages.
Of course a certain equality of outcome or result was achieved by the Liberals’ policies. The banks’ move to shield themselves from the inherent risks in sub-prime mortgages by bundling them into securities and the federal governments’ regulations that coerced financial firms to heavily buy those securities was a large part of what led to America’s current economic woes which have affected us all.
It’s a simple fact that lowering the standards and applying coercive force to ensure any form of demographic quotas can and will only achieve an equality of results when those results are negative and such negative results are the most likely outcome.
Thomas Sowell’s A Man of Letters is a book that most people in America should read. It is certainly, without a doubt, a book that every White should read in order to help dispel the Liberals’ long perpetuated myths about race relations in America and how their policies have affected it.
While nowhere near Sowell’s first publication, A Man Of Letters is a particularly great starting point for reading Sowell’s extensive body of work.
To-date Thomas Sowell has written 32 books and many more scholarly papers during the last 39 years on race relations, societal modeling, history, politics, and economics. Many of these books are considered seminal works in their respective fields. A Man Of Letters, however, gives a rare glimpse into the mind of the author and is, therefor, a great starting point for new readers of his works.
A Man of Letters traces the life, career, and commentaries on controversial issues of Thomas Sowell over a period of more than four decades through his letters to and from family, friends, and public figures ranging from Milton Friedman to Clarence Thomas, David Riesman, Arthur Ashe, William Proxmire, Vernon Jordan, Charles Murray, Shelby Steele, and Condoleezza Rice. These letters begin with Sowell as a graduate student at the University of Chicago in 1960 and conclude with a reflective letter to his fellow economist and longtime friend Walter Williams in 2005.
It is certainly worth the time it takes to read and is a book I highly recommend for everyone in America.
