Steven Yates' Column
On ‘Agents Provocateurs’: Lessons From the Hal Turner Saga
- By Steven Yates
I’ve been writing from a politically incorrect point of view about such topics as affirmative action, radical feminism, etc., for over 15 years now. My context is that of a political philosophy which (I hope) promotes freedom and responsibility for all individuals of whatever race/ethnicity, liberty in society, and discourages readers from trusting concentrations of power. Affirmative action programs, I often argued, are of questionable benefit to the majority of blacks, tend to trigger racial resentments that wouldn’t have been there otherwise, and concentrate power over the hiring process in the hands of faceless bureaucrats.
At first it annoyed me when some left-liberal would read such things and accuse me of being a closet racist, or worse. But by the time I’d moved to Greenville (2005), it only amused me.
