B1_14 Here are some excerpts of an article from Thomas Sowell…renown world economist. I have enjoyed his work for many years. It speaks of the power of language–even titles–to shape basic assumptions a subject’s content.

"Are you for or against "social justice"? A no-brainer. Who is going to be for injustice?

What about "a living wage"? Who wants people not to have enough money to live on?

Then there is "affordable housing" and "affordable health care." Who would want people to be unable to afford to put a roof over their heads or unable to go to a doctor when they are sick?

In real life, the devil is in the details. But the whole point of political rhetoric is to make it unnecessary for you to have to go into the specifics before taking sides.

You don’t need to know any economics to be in favor of "a living wage" or "affordable housing." In fact, the less economics you know, the more you can believe in such things.

For those who speak of great spiritual mysteries…food for thought.
