Thomas Sowell got into Harvard and Columbia before Affirmative Action. Sowell feels AA has hurt his fellow African Americans in terms of equality. Of course as an undergrad he got into Marxism as some do. He wrote his senior thesis on Marx. By the time he got his Ph.D in economics he was with the Chicago School of Friedman.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
