A Key Perspective

Thomas Sowell, speaking to Dennis Prager, talked about the concept of "poisonous ideas" -- ideas which make people demonstrably worse off. His example?

The moment someone is told, and believes, "You are not responsible for the conditions in your life" their life will become worse.

Example: the British lower classes, the Palestinians, American blacks.

Any further thoughts?
