Legendary Thomas Sowell Warns Our Country Is Approaching the ‘Point of No Return’
By Elise Ehrhard, Western Journalism, July 18, 2020:
Conservative economist and American treasure Thomas Sowell has a warning for Americans:
The 2020 elections could be a “point of no return” for the United States.
Sowell delivered the grim news Sunday during an appearance on conservative commentator Mark Levin’s Fox News Show, “Life, Liberty and Levin” — and appearance that came against a national backdrop of leftist calls to “defund police” amid rising crime and chaos in the streets of major U.S. cities.
“I must say, even though I was regarded as pessimistic, I was never pessimistic enough to think that things would degenerate to the point where they are now,” Sowell told Levin.
“Where adult human beings are talking about getting rid of the police. Where they’re talking about reducing the number of police, reducing the resources put in police work, at a time when murder rates have been skyrocketing over what they were just a year ago in 2019.
“I never dreamed that we would come to this point, it just seems such utter madness. And what is frightening is how many people in responsible positions are caving in to every demand that is made, repeating any kind of nonsense that you’re supposed to repeat. I do believe that we may well reach a point of no return.
“I hope, of course, that will never happen, but there is such a thing as a point of no return. The Roman Empire overcame many problems in its long history, but eventually, it reached the point where it simply could no longer continue on. And much of that was from within, not just the barbarians attacking from outside.”
Sowell, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, has written some of the most influential conservative books of the late 20th and early 21st centuries on issues ranging from economics to racism.
Levin asked Sowell what he thought of the phrase “systemic racism.”
“It really has no meaning that can be specified and tested in the way that one tests hypotheses,” Sowell replied.
