Letter: Amster has no peace for those who disagree


Randall Amster labels himself as a professor of "peace studies and social thought." However, he never fails to disappoint me in demonstrating that he is not a man of peace nor favors social discourse unless one agrees with his view of the world and how it should be.

In reality, it is abundantly clear from the tactics used in his column he is in the mold of the radical Saul Alinsky rather than a true advocate of peaceful dissent and social discourse like Mahatma Gandhi.

His column is full of ridicule and disdain for all of us who attended the April 15 event on courthouse square. He rails about partisanship rather than principled protest, all the while engaging in the same partisanship he so self-righteously decries. I wonder if I am the only one in Prescott who thinks that Mr. Amster fits right in with the academic ilk of Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill.
