Great Thomas Sowell Column entitled 'The Real Public Service'

I read this column today for the first time (it was originally published in May of 1999), but it is just as appropriate today.

This is my favorite quote from the column:

"Those who have helped the poor the most have not been those who have gone around loudly expressing "compassion" for the poor, but those who found ways to make industry more productive and distribution more efficient, so that the poor of today can afford things that the affluent of yesterday could only dream about."

I only wish more people realized this is true ...
