FEATURING KRISTIAN WILLIAMS – Oscar Wilde, the famous celebrated and legendary writer, known for such books as The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray, was, by today’s standards “antifa.” The philosophical depth and political radicalism of Oscar Wilde’s ideas were in line with anarchist ideals and are hugely relevant to today’s culture wars.
Kristian Williams is the author of several books, including Our Enemies in Blue: Police and Power in America and Between the Bullet and the Lie: Essays on Orwell. His latest book, with a Foreword from the well-known comic writer Alan Moore is called Resist Everything Except Temptation: The Anarchist Philosophy of Oscar Wilde.
