Sowell Speaks on the Politics of Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks and history�-�Commentary�-�The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "People who decry the fact that businesses are in business 'just to make money' seldom understand the implications of what they are saying. You make money by doing what other people want, not what you want."

The excerpt above is the one really great line of his piece. Capitalism can actually be an engine for equality and fairness. Imagine. Anyway, another point that I have been wanting to make is the appropriateness of honoring Rosa Parks with a public viewing in the Capitol. Thankfully, the applause, awards and appreciation came mostly while she was alive, so that she could get a sense of her own place in history. I always find it sad when it is primarily posthumous. She was lavished with praise almost from that day in December 1955 to this day in 2005. Being a catalyst for maturing a country is no small feat. We must continue to thank her even after her passing.
