The Vision of the Anointed: SelfCongratulation as a Basis for Social Policy

Author: Thomas Sowell

Narrator: Tom Weiner

Unabridged: 9 hr 20 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Genre: Political Science - Public Policy - Social Policy

Synopsis

In this devastating critique of the mindset behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years, Thomas Sowell sees what has happened not as a series of isolated mistakes, but as a logical consequence of a vision whose defects have led to disasters in education, crime, family disintegration, and more. This is an empirical study in which politically correct theory is repeatedly confronted with facts, and the sharp contradictions between the two are explained in terms of a set of selfcongratulatory assumptions held by political and intellectual elites. These elitesthe anointedoften consider themselves thinking people, but this thinking is actually rhetorical assertion, followed by evasions of mounting evidence against these assertions. The vision of the anointed is seen not merely as a failure but as a fatal danger to the values and the future of American society.
