Sowell is a conservative. Conservatives aim to conserve liberalism (including liberal ideals & capitalism). Naturally, that leads to them saying things like these because they support the system and ideals it's based on, while ignoring how the system actually exists among people.

Activism serves a purpose. It's not to "help" people, it's to legitimize and enact changes supported by the ruling class. Just like protests. Conservatives necessarily ignore various roles within the system that people have and their relation to power, or just blame it on marxism, communism, etc, in turn legitimizing the system & preventing a genuine challenge to it.
