The War Against Achievement
By Thomas Sowell – November 19, 2013
A friend recently sent me a link to an inspiring video about an upbeat young black man who was born without arms. It showed him going to work — unlike the record number of people living on government payments for “disabilities” that are far less serious, if not fictitious.
How is this young man getting to work? He gets into his car and drives there — using controls set up so that he can operate the car with his feet.What kind of work does he do, and how does he do it? He is involved in the design of racing cars. He sits at his computer, looking at the screen, with the keyboard on the floor, where he uses his toes as others use their fingers.
