Constrained versus Unconstrained Visions (Thomas Sowell, A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles [NY: Morrow, 1987]) “Unconstrained Vision” (liberal) “Constrained Vision” (conservative) The Nature of Man Selfishness is not a permanent feature of human nature. But for all such difficulties, Sowell says that even to admit that there is a conflict of visions is some kind of advancement. If he was so stricken by “A Conflict of Visions”, Arnold probably did not read “The Vision of the Anointed”. It is quite possible for people of the same moral values or religious views to nevertheless end up with opposing visions. This is because the visions are matters of causation, not morality. My best suggestion for understanding these two visions and their roles in ideological struggle is to read the book, but I will attempt to break down some of the concepts. Sometimes cogent, the book falls short, however, of objectivity; its conservative biases and obfuscations are readily apparent from the start. A broadly sweeping philosophical analysis, Sowell's new book performs a useful service for people interested in contemporary politics: it attempts to lay out objectively the basic differences between the liberal and conservative visions. The latter contains the thesis of the former, but adds US policy case studies and a description of how the unconstrained vision is enacted in policy-making. Interests, he says, are articulated by people who know what their interests are and what they want to do about them. Reality is far too complex to be comprehended by any given mind. Sowell describes the critical differences between interests and visions. Not all the case studies are convincing, as starting in the early 90’s, Sowell has become increasingly partisan. Visions, however, are the implicit assumptions by which people operate.

A Conflict of Visions presents two opposing visions, Constrained, a tragic vision of the human condition; and Unconstrained, a moral vision of human intentions, which are viewed as ultimately decisive. A Conflict of Visions by Thomas Sowell is a nonfiction book and was published in 1987. In politics, visions are either “constrained” or “unconstrained.” A closer look at the statements of both McCain and Visions are like maps that guide us through a tangle of bewildering complexities.
