Henderson points out a great idea from Sowell — it is far easier to concentrate power, than to concentrate knowledge.

This is obvious, when thought about, but seldom mentioned. So I haven’t thought about it, before.

It bears repeating because it helps to explain why the power-loving intellectuals support for central power so often fails.
