The Danger of Holding Strong Viewpoints

Here’s an interesting article on a Klan member in Arkansas who lost his job as a prison guard due to his political activities. I’ll leave aside the ethical and legal questions involved in firing a person strictly on the basis of their political beliefs (although one should keep in mind that a prison guard should expect to be held to a higher security standard than the average worker). I would instead point out that if you’re involved in any sort of politically dodgy activities, it would probably be best to go to great lengths to insure your employer does not find out about them.
