  • @patrick_oshag @rabois Vision of the Anointed is arguable the best book to make sense of the current world we live in. It was written in 95. Sowell is so prescient and brilliantLink to Tweet

About Book

Sowell presents a devastating critique of the mind-set behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years. Sowell sees what has happened during that time not as a series of isolated mistakes but as a logical consequence of a tainted vision whose defects have led to crises in education, crime, and family dynamics, and to other social pathologies. In this book, he describes how elites—the anointed—have replaced facts and rational thinking with rhetorical assertions, thereby altering the course of our social policy.
