Intellectuals on the sideline

From NRO's The Corner, Hoover fellow Thomas Sowell exposes the motivation behind intellectual meddling.
“It gives them a much bigger role in the world. I mean if you believe in free markets, what about all these people who want to have social justice. People just go out there; they make whatever deals they can with each other, work things out and then go on their way. Here is all this unused brilliance standing on the sideline watching with impotent rage.”
So THAT'S what's wrong with capitalism.  It just doesn't take advantage of all that progressive intellectual brilliance just waiting to be relied upon.
