This is excerpted from RULES FOR RADICALS” By Saul Alinsky
Excerpts from a fanatic, studied by a President and his helper.
What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. “The Prince,” was written by Machiavelli, (another kook) for the Haves on how to hold power. “Rules for Radicals,” is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.
For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting what is wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it. According to Alinsky, the organizer------------especially a paid organizer from outside-------must first overcome suspicion and establish credibility . Next the organizer must begin the task of agitating; rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy. (does this sound familiar) This is necessary to get people to participate. An organizer has to attack apathy and disturb the prevailing patterns of complacent community life where people have come to simply accept a bad situation. Alinsky says, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.”
Through a process combining hope and resentment, the organizer tries to creat a “mass army” that brings in as many recruits as possible from churches, service groups, labor unions, corner gangs and individuals.
Alinsky provides a collection of rules to guide the process. But he emphasizes these rules must be translated into real-life tactics that are fluid and responsive to the situation at hand. According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting---------“The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”
I ask you………………is this grounds for impeachment? Please enlighten your selves and read the eleven (11) rules that Obama and Hillary have known so well, they live by them.
