Thomas Sowell, A Conflict of Visions, 1987
"One of the curious things about political opinions is how often the
same people line up on opposite sides of different issues.
The issues themselves may have no intrinsic connection with
each other. They may range from military spending to drug laws to
monetary policy to education. Yet the same familiar faces
can be found glaring at each other from opposite sides of the political
fence, again and again." (p.13)
