With so much “change” and so little sense, one might wonder… what is the impetus of the Obama Administration’s game plan?

Exhibit A.

SAUL ALINSKY, (1909-1972)

Saul Alinksy

Saul Alinksy

Hometown:  Chicago, IL

Profession(s):  Community organizer and writer.

Reputation:  Radical liberal – known as the father of modern community organization.


In his book, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals (1971) Random House, Alinsky describes his tactics on achieving “CHANGE”. 

“There’s another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don’t encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let’s not let it happen by default.”

 Rule #12 exhibits Alinsky’s disciplined efficiency in achieving the end goal: 

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)”

Perhaps most chilling is the tribute he writes at the beginning of Rules

“From all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”

However, the most appalling aspect of all is that in his analysis of the psychology of people… Alinsky was correct.
