Hobbsian Logic

RealClearPolitics - The Money of Fools

Good column from Sowell,  worth the read.

The left believes that society is omniscient and omnipotent, but of course it is neither. Which makes their concept of "social justice" simply a foolish juxtaposition of words
You can talk or act as if society is both omniscient and omnipotent. But, to do so would be to let words become what Thomas Hobbes called them, "the money of fools."
