The real “PC”
[Speech at FAIR conference, 1991: “A society’s openness to unlimited diversity is not primarily a question of economics or ideology or class; it is at bottom a moral phenomenon, connected with all the other moral concerns of society.”]

America: Multiethnic, not Multicultural
[1991 article in Academic Questions arguing that the neoconservative view of America as a universalist idea is both false in itself and an inadequate no defense against multiculturalism, and that multiculturalism can only be stopped through the renewal of a particularist understanding of America, with special focus on the Anglo-Saxon origins and core components of our culture. The article was published along with Diane Ravitch’s “A Response to Auster,” followed by “A Reply to Ravitch.”]

The Forbidden Topic
[1992 article in National Review arguing that immigration is the main cause of multiculturalism. This was NR’s first front-of-the-magazine article criticizing immigration on a cultural basis.]

Restricting the immigration debate
[1992 article in Miami Herald: “The point is that immigration restrictionism cannot be simply dismissed as scapegoating, exploitation, or any other symptom to be analyzed by the social psychiatrists, but that it is exactly what it claims to be—fear of excessive immigration and its social, cultural and political consequences. It’s a view that must be accepted or refuted on its own merits.”]
