One less “brain-dead liberal”

Well-known American author, playwright and film director David Mamet announced last week that he is no longer a “brain-dead liberal.” He now believes in free market thinkers such as Thomas Sowell who he calls “our greatest contemporary philosopher.”

Wall Street Journal columnist Daniel Henninger wonders, “If David Mamet says he can’t take it anymore, can others be far behind?”

Without making brain-dead jokes, what arguments and evidence do you think will help convince other liberals to see the light, and listen more to free market thinkers?
