    Sowell might be the best example there is as far as colleges go.

    Liberals ordinarily would drool over a man like him. For all intents and purposes, A genius, who is an African American high school drop out from Harlem. Unfortunately welfare and government subsidies didn't create him, so instead he's just an annoying anomaly to them.

    My personal favorite:

    In their haste to be wiser and nobler than others, the anointed have misconceived two basic issues. They seem to assume (1) that they have more knowledge than the average member of the benighted and (2) that this is the relevant comparison. The real comparison, however, is not between the knowledge possessed by the average member of the educated elite versus the average member of the general public, but rather the total direct knowledge brought to bear though social processes (the competition of the marketplace, social sorting, etc.), involving millions of people, versus the secondhand knowledge of generalities possessed by a smaller elite group. —Thomas Sowell
