This book identifies the "ideological origins of political struggles"--Why some people are liberals and others are conservatives. Sowell explains that most people have one of two contrasting visions. Those visions are "constrained" and "unconstrained." People holding the constrained vision find nature to be limited in its moral possibility and therefore caution against granting government wide scope of authority. They feel that reform is difficult and often dangerous. The indispensable bases of order, freedom, and prosperity are family, custom, law, and traditional institutions. Conversely, those holding the opposing vision, the "unconstrained," deny the existence of a negative element in nature and argue that whole societies can be accomplished by removing environmental impediments such as family, property, and custom.
