I read a quote by Thomas Sowell this morning that explains where these OWSers are coming from. It goes
“Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.”
At least one generation of parents apparently failed to civilize their barbarians.
Another quote from this brilliant man is,
“The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.”
