On Sunday, Dr. Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution, warned that the election of Joe Biden might be a “point of no return.”
“Well, I must say, even though I’m regarded as pessimistic, I was never pessimistic enough to think that things would degenerate to the point where they are now, where adult human beings are talking about getting rid of the police, where they’re talking about reducing the number of police, reducing the resources put into police work at a time when murder rates have been skyrocketing over what they were just a year ago in 2019.” Sowell said.
“I never dreamed we’d come to this point.” Sowell continued. “It just seems such utter madness, and what is frightening is how many people in responsible positions are caving into every demand that is made, repeating any kind of nonsense that you’re supposed to repeat.”
“I do believe that we may well be, we may well reach a point of no return. I hope that of course, that will never happen. But there is such a thing as a point of no return.” Sowell said. “The Roman Empire overcame many problems in its long history, but eventually it reached the point where it simply could no longer continue on, and much of that was from within, not just the Barbarians attacking from outside.”
Sowell later added. “What I see is that if the election goes to Biden, that there’s a good chance that the Democrats will then control all the two branches of Congress and the White House, and considering the kinds of things that they are proposing, that could well be the point of no return for this country.”
