Thomas Sowell Reviewed At The American Spectator Via The A & L Daily: “Can’t Live With Them”

Full review here. (Sowell’s new book Intellectuals And Society)

A reasonable review, though not entirely sympathetic.  Our reviewer concludes with:

“I’d say that means not that we have less need of intellectuals, but more need of better ones.”

I would add the following quote by Albert Jay Nock:

‘It is a primary instinct of human nature to satisfy one’s needs and desires with the least possible exertion; everyone tends by instinctive preference to use the political means rather than the economic means, if he can do so.

If you’ve read the book, please share your thoughts.
