Is Truth Irrelevant?

Jan 13, 2021 by

by Dr Thomas Sowell: It is amazing how many people seem to have discovered last Wednesday that riots are wrong — when many of those same people apparently had not noticed that when riots went on, for weeks or even months, in various cities across the country last year. For too many people, especially in the media, what is right and wrong, true or false, depends on who it helps or hurts politically. Too many media people who are supposed to be reporters act as if they are combatants in...

Oct 27, 2020 by

Aug 26, 2020 by

Her meaning is rather confused and confusing: “I believe slavery...
