Thomas Sowell’s Conflict of Visions was published 21 years ago and re-released last year, and at National Review, in a series of five short video interviews, Sowell discusses the “constrained” and “unconstrained” visions that inform conservative and liberal ideas, respectively. In Chapter 1 (of 5), Sowell describes the concept of vision, which we might consider something like worldview or set of presuppositions about the world. In Chapter 2, Sowell explains the difference between constrained and unconstrained visions. In Chapter 3, “Sowell says the constrained vision is never surprised by war, while the unconstrained vision almost always is.” In Chapter 4, Sowell explains how these “visions” see economic issues. And in Chapter 5, Sowell discusses what he considers the dangers of the “unconstrained vision.”
The End of Journalism by Victor Davis HansonI pray that you may acquire wisdom — wisdom beyond your tender years, your thin experience, and your inconsequential legislative achievements — wisdom as a public servant in office, rather, that is at least commensurate with the skill you've shown as a campaigner, which has been a genuine marvel.I pray for your health, because, with due respect, I regard the prospect of your Vice President-elect having to step into your shoes with genuine panic. Let's hope that he can continue to be Crazy Uncle Joe, less of a danger to the nation as Vice President than as chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
