During the COVID pandemic I found out about Thomas Sowell and his ideas on economics and politics. As someone who has studied social and political ethics, I find his views very insightful and generally agree with much of what he says.
This video is just one which I like because it uses gratitude with how well things are for those in North America and Europe when compared to the other countries in the world as a starting point for a deeper critique on hollow campaign slogans such as the simple and common “change” promise.
“Nothing is easier than to take for granted what we are used to and to image that it is more or less natural so that it requires no explanation. Instead, many Americans demand explanations of why things are not even better and express indignation that they are not.”
