‘I Just Do My Own Thing’: Walter Williams, RIP

I'm saddened to write of the death of libertarian economist Walter E. Williams. He passed away Wednesday morning at the age of 84, less than a day after teaching a class at George Mason University, where he worked for 40 years and helped transform his department into a highly respected center of free market scholars. A popular syndicated columnist whose work appeared in over a hundred newspapers on a weekly basis, he was a long-time contributor to Reason and served as an emeritus trustee of Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes this website.

ACRU’s Professor Walter Williams: The Census is not a tool for vote fraud

Noting the obvious — only US citizens can vote in US elections — ACRU Policy Board Member Walter Williams is concerned that, “counting illegal immigrants in the census undermines (the) fundamental principle that every citizen-voter has an equal voice.” It is indeed a dangerous road. Walter references Hans von Spakovky’s work in his article, and we are grateful to have them both on team ACRU.

Walter Williams: Leftist effort ongoing to revise US history

The destruction of historical monuments has not ceased, nor has ACRU efforts to protect them. In a new syndicated column, ACRU Policy Board Member Walter Williams notes, “a tyrant’s first battlefield is to rewrite history” and shames the left by sarcastically suggesting a “Commission to Eliminate Bad Memories.” Please read this great commentary and visit our Protect Monuments website to join us in saving our national treasures.

Colleges Dupe Parents and Taxpayers

Colleges have been around for centuries. College students have also been around for centuries. Yet, college administrators assume that today's students have needs that were unknown to their predecessors. Those needs include diversity and equity personnel, with massive budgets to accommodate.
