Thomas Sowell on the benefit of the 10th Commandment
While Thomas Sowell doesn’t mention the Bible, the point he makes here is a biblical one. Correcting “income inequality” requires us to do as the 10th Commandment forbids – it makes a virtue out of looking over the back fence and making plans for what our neighbor has.
