"The Garrison Commission ..."
by William Turner
       Garrison's political philosophy defies definition. He subscribes in part to Ayn Rand's individualist dogma, but is too much of a traditional democrat to accept its inevitable elitism. He is friendly with segregationists and archconservatives, but bristles at the mention of the Ku Klux Klan. Negro leaders have no quarrel with his conduct of office, and he has appointed Negroes as assistant DAs [to juvenile court and after the Voting Rights Act of 1965 increased minority registration].
