Don't Hold Your Breath Waiting For The Socialist Sweep In 2018

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Wednesday, August 29, 2018

It’s election season, and madness is in the air. Besides the usual questions in a midterm election — who will carry the House and Senate, and how many seats will the incumbent president lose — the word socialism, rarely heard in American politics, is out in the open. A few candidates are actually running for office under the socialism banner. But what does that mean for the 2018 elections and beyond?

UNC Needs Greater Focus On Class Diversity

quoting Thomas Sowellvia The Daily Tar Heel
Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Diversity: the word that best defines our current social climate. Wherever one might look, training, requirements and conversations about diversity dominate every bit of attention the American public has to offer. This emphasis has originated from modern universities, who are criticized as breeding grounds for social justice theory. And to the extent that such accusations are true, UNC is no exception.

If Hillary Clinton Had Won, US Politics Would Be Even Crazier

by Niall Ferguson quoting Jack Goldsmithvia Boston Globe
Monday, August 27, 2018

My six-year-old son and I have been reading Philip Pullman’s extraordinary trilogy, “His Dark Materials.” (We had run out of Harry Potter.) Pullman’s books are a kind of atheist antidote to C.S. Lewis’s delightful “Narnia” series. Central to the plot is the idea, derived from modern physics, that our universe is just one of an infinite number of universes and that there could be “wormholes” that connect one universe to another.

Classic Thomas Sowell From 2012 On The Fallacy Of Redistribution

featuring Thomas Sowellvia American Enterprise Institute
Monday, August 27, 2018

While reviewing some old posts from 2012, I came across a CD post with a great quotation from Thomas Sowell on the “fallacy of redistribution,” which generated nearly 400 comments below the original post (might be a CD record for comments?). So here’s a re-post of Thomas Sowell in 2012 explaining why redistribution fails (emphasis added), which is particularly relevant now that democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are proposing to fund their socialist pipe dream by raising the taxes on the “ultra-wealthy” to make them pay their “fair share.”
