Obama's Dreams (Thomas Sowell)
Creators Syndicate ^ | September 4, 2012 | Thomas Sowell

Posted on 08/31/2012 4:11:52 PM PDT by jazusamo

After reading Barack Obama's book "Dreams from My Father," it became painfully clear that he has not been searching for the truth, because he assumed from an early age that he had already found the truth — and now it was just a question of filling in the details and deciding how to change things.

Obama did not simply happen to encounter a lot of people on the far left fringe during his life. As he spells out in his book, he actively sought out such people. There is no hint of the slightest curiosity on his part about other visions of the world that might be weighed against the vision he had seized upon.

As Professor Richard Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School has pointed out, Obama made no effort to take part in the marketplace of ideas with other faculty members when he was teaching a law course there. What would be the point, if he already knew the truth and knew that they were wrong?

This would be a remarkable position to take, even for a learned scholar who had already spent decades canvassing a vast amount of information and views on many subjects. But Obama was already doctrinaire at a very early age — and ill-informed or misinformed on both history and economics.

His statement in "Dreams from My Father" about how white men went to Africa to "drag away the conquered in chains" betrays his ignorance of African history.

The era of the Atlantic slave trade and the era of European conquests across the continent of Africa were different eras. During the era of the Atlantic slave trade, most of Africa was ruled by Africans, who sold some of their slaves to white men.

All of this just means obozo is a typical liberal. Uninformed, blind to other ideas, self-important... the usual.

What is tragic is America put him in a position where he could harm us. And he has done so.

The estimable Dr. Sowell has made a rare mistake, assuming that Barrack Obama, and not Ayers, wrote "Dreams from my Father".

Everything makes a lot more sense when you realize that Obama's entire life and mission were laid out before him like a red carpet by the red commies.

The money quote:
Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt. When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his confidence.
But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.

I have always considered Dr. Sowell to be more than just intelligent, more than just informed, more than just educated, but also, wise.
Unlike most of the pundits of today, he starts with uncommon observations and draws his own unique and far seeing conclusions that show a deep understanding of human nature and the political process.

” When Obama wrote that many people “had been enslaved only because of the color of their skin,” he was repeating a common piece of gross misinformation. For thousands of years, people enslaved other people of the same race as themselves, whether in Europe, Asia, Africa or the Western Hemisphere.

Europeans enslaved other Europeans for centuries before the first African was brought in bondage to the Western Hemisphere. The very word “slave” is derived from the name of a European people once widely held in bondage, the Slavs.”

Sorry, but Obama is STUPID.....stupid to the bone, and dangerous as all hell.

Informative, insightful piece as usual from TS.

I appreciate his touching on the world history of slavery and dispelling common myths held not only by Obama but many, many others.

I'm fond of Sowell's straightforward writing style. Sometimes political commentators are more involved with the aesthetics or snarkiness of their craft, than with articulating concise, salient arguments. And nobody hammers Obama quite like Sowell!

A great deal of leftist ideology simply comes down to jealousy of what others have. The old haves and have not theory. Nevertheless, Obama and the rest of the leftist cretins who make money off being leftist stooges (Michael Moore, etal) never stop to think that it would have been impossible for them to achieve the wealth they’ve accumulated in any of the Marxist Edens they admire so much.

Obama’s African Forebears Were Slave Traders

In the 18th century, Muslim slavers moved into the interior of Kenya for the purpose of exploiting blood rivalries between local tribes. Muslims encouraged warring tribes, Obama Jr’s Luo ancestors included, to capture “prisoners of war” and sell them into slavery.

Kenya tribe leaders, also exported slaves and ivory that had been exchanged by Africans from the interior for salt, cloth, beads, and metal goods. The slaves were then marched to the coast and shipped to Muslim Zanzibar (an island South of Kenya), to be traded again.

African slaves and ivory became hugely profitable and Zanzibar Muslims grew rich on the trade. Slave trading continued despite the public outrage in Europe demanding an end to all slave trade.

The British, eventually brought their forceful anti-slavery message directly to the Muslim Sultan.

Many people know that Democratic presidential candidate Obama Jr’s father was from Kenya and his mother from Kansas. But, (quoting a Mar.2, 2007 report in the Baltimore Sun), “an intriguing sliver of his [Obama Jr.] family history has received almost no attention until now: It appears that forebears of his white mother owned slaves, according to genealogical research and census records.

Obama’s Relatives Never Were Brought Here Into Slavery, Because Obama’s Muslim Family Were The Ones Rounding Up The African Slaves!!

“.......But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation.”

And costly as well I might add. Just think of this one. We live in the flight pattern’s of multiple airports, military installations, Air Force, and civilian, and have lived in this location for 25 years.

It is our observation today, and has been for quite awhile, and especially with the current lot in the WH with their majority influence that the Democrats are considerably more adept at wasting taxpayer dollars on self importance than are the Republicans.

First noticed during the Clinton years the quantity of government aircraft that fly in and out of the various military air bases around our location versus during the Bush I, or Bush II administrations is excessive to the point of being ridiculous.

With this crowd of Democrats in the leadership today we see more flights of government aircraft than at anytime during either of the Republican administrations.

During Republican Administrations we would rarely see a government plane. During Democrat Adminstrations we see them sometimes twice daily, and multiple times per week. It causes us to reflect upon the costs of the upkeep of Democrats, and their self importance.

Must be the self importance factor with the Democrat as Republicans don’t find it necessary to fly all over the country, the World for that matter to be seen, when they can achieve their goals from their offices with the massive amount of communications technology the taxpayers have afforded them to get their job done.

Something amiss with the average Democrat requiring the adulation, the awe of their subjects to bring contentment to their otherwise miserable lives I s’pose.

Thanks for the ping.

Less than sixty years after the teachers unions began the methodical dumbing down of our culture, half of the country is ignorant enough to have blind faith in the hate driven “vision” of an ignoramus to whom logic and objective fact are meaningless.

To: jazusamo; All
Once again, Dr. Sowell has shed light at a time when it is needed.

His is not the limited field of knowledge and understanding possessed by ideologues who form opinions without the benefit of honest inquiry, diligent study, and objective analysis. America's youth need leadership which sets an example of such diligence and intellectual honesty, especially as it concerns the great principles underlying America's constitutional history.

The following is a synopsis of the enormous contributions America's Founders made toward eradicating slavery from these shores and creating a constitutional republic which could, ultimately, affirm and protect the rights of ALL people:

Jefferson's Autobiography, contains the following statement:

"The first establishment in Virginia which became permanent was made in 1607. I have found no mention of negroes in the colony until about 1650. The first brought here as slaves were by a Dutch ship; after which the English commenced the trade and continued it until the revolutionary war. That suspended...their future importation for the present, and the business of the war pressing constantly on the (Virginia) legislature, this subject was not acted on finally until the year 1778, when I brought a bill to prevent their further importation. This passed without opposition, leaving to future efforts its final eradication."

Jefferson also observed:

"Where the disease [slavery] is most deeply seated, there it will be slowest in eradication. In the northern States, it was merely superficial and easily corrected. In the southern, it is incorporated with the whole system and requires time, patience, and perseverance in the curative process."

He explained that, "In 1769, I became a member of the legislature by the choice of the county in which I live [Albemarle County, Virginia], and so continued until it was closed by the Revolution. I made one effort in that body for the permission of the emancipation of slaves, which was rejected: and indeed, during the regal [crown] government, nothing [like this] could expect success."

One more quotation, cited in David Barton's work on the subject of the Founders and slavery, which also cites the fact that there were laws in the State of Virginia which prevented citizens from emancipating slaves, (can be found at Barton's web site shown later herein) is this one from Jefferson:

"The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this and learn to imitate it; for man is an imitative animal. This quality is the germ of all education in him. From his cradle to his grave he is learning to do what he sees others do. If a parent could find no motive either in his philanthropy or his self-love for restraining the intemperance of passion towards his slave, it should always be a sufficient one that his child is present. But generally it is not sufficient. . . . The man must be a prodigy who can retain his manners and morals undepraved by such circumstances. And with what execration should the statesman be loaded who permits one half the citizens thus to trample on the rights of the other. . . . And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep for ever. . . . The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest. . . . [T]he way, I hone [is] preparing under the auspices of Heaven for a total emancipation."

For an excellent and factual record of the Founders' views on the matter of slavery (especially those of Washington and Jefferson} visit David Barton's site. A review of the factual, written history of the period in order to understand the tremendous contributions of the Founders to the "extinction" of slavery in America is essential to any meaningful discussion. Barton has has utilized the record in writing that exists to inform any who wish to arm themselves with knowledge. One source he does not quote, I believe, is the famous "Speech on Conciliation" by Edmund Burke before the British Parliament, wherein he admonished the Parliament for its Proposal to declare a general enfranchisement of the slaves in America.

Burke rather sarcastically observed that should the Parliament carry through with the proposed Proposal: "Slaves as these unfortunate black people are, and dull as all men are from slavery, must they not a little suspect the offer of freedom from that very nation (England) which has sold them to their present masters? from that nation, one of whose causes of quarrel with those masters is their refusal to deal any more in that inhuman traffic?" He continued: "An offer of freedom from England would come rather oddly, shipped to them in an African vessel, which is refused an entry into the ports of Virginia or Carolina, with a cargo of three hundred Angola negroes. It would be curious to see the Guinea captain attempting at the same instant to publish his proclamtion of liberty and to advertise his sale of slaves."

It's amazing how knowledge of the facts can alter one's opinion of the revisionist history that has been taught for generations in American schools (including its so-called "law schools"!!!

Human beings are allotted ONLY A TINY SLIVER OF TIME ON THIS EARTH. Each finds the world and his/her own community/nation existing as it is. If lawyers and judges educated themselves (in this day of the Internet) on the history of civilization and America's real history, and if they used that knowledge and the resulting understanding, to do as much on behalf of liberty for ALL people as did Thomas Jefferson and America's other Founders, the world in the next century would be a better place.

Remember, Thomas Jefferson was only 33 years old when he penned our Declaration of Independence which capsulized a truly revolutionary idea into a simple statement that survives to this day to inspire people all over the world to strive for liberty!

Sowell, though he never makes direct reference to it, bases his observations on the solid rock of biblical objective Truth.
That is the source of his wisdom. Rejection of this objective truth is the basis of Obama’s folly.

Remember “sin is being out of alignment with my values”.

Thanks for posting this excellent history lesson. I may have known it, but I never before correlated the dates sufficiently to realize that the slave trade from Africa occurred before the European occupation of Africa.

What would be the point, if he already knew the truth and knew that they were wrong?

I trust that Dr. Sowell is talking about a time in the not-too-distant past when universities really had differences in their "marketplaces of ideas" to explore and compare and contrast, yes? Obama is not much older than I am, and when I got around to college, a hefty majority of faculty at the state school I went to wouldn't have much problem with Obama's world-view. Probably be the toast of a lot of post-grad parties.

You are correct! For decades, our high schools, colleges, universities, and even law schools have not provided that "marketplace of ideas" for student examination and evaluation.

Instead, ever since so-called "progressives" began their steady and ongoing censorship of the ideas of liberty from which America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution were derived, students have been abandoned to seek out sources for such ideas in remote and dusty library stacks, or in rare book stores.

Those who called themselves "progressives" have worked like termites to erode and destroy America's foundations in liberty by censorship of school textbooks, laws to prohibit such ideas from public political discourse, and in various other ways--an effort more far-reaching that 1933's "burning of the books."

But for the advent of computer technology, they might have succeeded.

Now, every senior citizen and every school child with a computer can read the great writings which make up the literature of freedom. A movement called "the Tea Party" may be the result of that technology's impact on ordinary citizens.

Once again, a fresh breeze of ideas is blowing around us, and the "planners," "redistributors" of the earnings of others, and arrogant small minds will feel that breeze as it awakens both young and old to a conviction that "our life, rights, liberty and laws to protect them" come from a Creator, and that makes them "unalienable" by any temporary power we allow to our elected officials. That was the idea encapsulated in our D of C and structured into a document which limited our grants of power.

"The laws of nature are the laws of God, whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth. A legislature must not obstruct our obedience to Him, from whose punishment they cannot protect us. All human laws which contradict His laws we are in conscience bound to disobey." - George Mason, Delegate from Virginia & Signer of the Constitution

Congratulations to Ryan and Romney as they remind us of the Source of our rights, and we must hold them to the underlying premise of our election of them to uphold that central idea underlying their duties under our Constitution.

"Those who called themselves "progressives" have worked like termites to erode and destroy America's foundations in liberty"

I had an exterminator describe how termites behave as a collective and calling progressives "termites" is spot on. They survive as a group with predefined divisions of labor, they work tirelessly to find large sources of food (our homes) to feed the giver of life - the queen (their state), they know exactly how much they can destroy before they bring down the structure or give away their destructive activities, and they make calculated sacrifices of their workers to break through chemical barriers if they run low on food (other people's money). The whole ecosystem is the insect world of liberalism (or maybe the other way around).

Thank you, uncommonsense, for such an apt description of the parallels between the activities of termites and those of the movement in America variously called "liberal" and "progressive," where those who would undermine and destroy the foundations of liberty have combined to erode and destroy the very supports essential to that liberty.

Unwilling to call what they have done by the ugly name of "censorship," they systematically have removed America's founding ideas from the so-called "education" system they controlled, thereby robbing new generations of understanding the Source of their lives, rights, liberty, and laws.

A massive effort must be undertaken to restore the foundations, using every means available, so that future generations will not live in slavery to those whose ideas are counterfeit.
