abl asked JCD:
I have a question for you: should Williams be willing to hire tenure candidates with inferior records, and to give those tenure candidates more reign not to publish/not to publish well before cutting them loose, so as to develop a faculty that includes more voices on the right? In other words, should Williams be practicing affirmative action for conservative scholars on its faculty?
Yes! Just as Williams has recently practiced affirmative action in hiring in the physics and math/stats department.
