For those who haven't read it--and as I've lectured you before, you really should read it--Gene Healy offers a nice, concise summary of Thomas Sowell's A Conflict of Visions. I quibble with one sentence of the review:
The book was written in 1987, so there's probably more focus on central planning than the modern reader needs, that fight having largely been won, and the unconstrained vision mugged by reality.
Oh yeah? Somebody forgot to tell our Liberal friends.
But Mr. Healy should be forgiven this small lapse because he describes himself using the wonderful words of Elvis Costello: ""I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused."
