Steve Kangas (Steven Robert Esh, May 11, 1961 – February 8, 1999) was a journalist, political activist and chess teacher known for his website Liberalism Resurgent [1] and highly political usenet postings.[2] Until 1986 he worked for military intelligence. His stay in Berlin turned him from a conservative into an outspoken liberal militant.[3] His writings were sharply critical of business propaganda of the overclass[4] and CIA.[5]


He died of a gunshot wound under unclear circumstances.[6][7] He was found on the 39th floor in the restroom of the offices of Richard Mellon Scaife[8] inside One Oxford Center, Pittsburgh. It was ruled a suicide by local police.
