The problem with saul alinsky
General Patton has been identified in the massive right-wing conspiracy, and his name is David Kahane. For political aficionados of all stripes, Kahane’s pseudonymous, satiric column for National Review Online, lampooning the Left through his Hollywood-radical persona – Stephen Colbert’s liberal doppelganger – is must-listening. Kahane now proudly reveals the Left’s hidden and not-so-secret winning tactics (and vulnerabilities) from the inside.
This audiobook was designed to inform Americans about the radical type of socialism that is sweeping the United States. Our schools are instilling in our children a romanticized view of socialism, oblivious to the dangers it may entail. Adults must understand socialism in order to educate our children about it.
When antifa assaulted Andy Ngo in the streets in the summer of 2019, most people thought it was a one-time event. Those who had been following Ngo’s reporting in the New York Post and Quillette, however, understood that the attack was only the latest in a long line of antifa crimes. Andy Ngo’s book Unmasked tells the story of this violent terrorist movement from its beginnings.

Rules for Radicals, first published in 1971, is Saul Alinsky’s passionate guidance to young radicals about how to bring about positive social change and understand “the difference between being a practical radical and being a rhetorical one.” This volume exemplifies Alinsky’s style at its finest, written in the midst of new political movements whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to challenge. Alinsky, like Thomas Paine before him, was able to combine the strength of political participation with an absolute emphasis on rational political debate and adherence to the American democratic tradition in both his person and his writing.
Saul Alinsky was born in Chicago in 1909 and received his education in the city’s streets and later at its university. He encountered the Capone gang while doing graduate work in criminology at the University of Chicago, and then at Joliet State Prison, where he researched prison life. He developed the Alinsky doctrine and the Alinsky principles of mass organization for power, which are still used today. His attempts to mobilize the oppressed to fight for their rights as people have been acknowledged on a global scale. He organized the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago (made famous by Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle) in the late 1930s. Mr. Alinsky and his team then worked to organize communities not only in Chicago but around the country through the Industrial Areas Foundation, which he established in 1940. Later, he changed his concentration to the middle class, founding a training center for organizers. In 1972, he passed away.
Rules for radicals
Rules for Radicals is divided into ten chapters and includes ten lessons about how a community activist can effectively mobilize people into an active grassroots group that can effect change on a range of issues. These chapters cover a wide range of topics, including ethics, education, communication, symbol creation, and political theory, despite the fact that they are aimed at community organizations. [number four]
Alinsky’s ideas have been applied by various government, labor, community, and congregation-based groups, and the core concepts of his organizing techniques have been recurring elements in political campaigns in recent years, despite being published in 1971 for a new generation of counterculture-era organizers.
Alinsky’s own experience as a community organizer provided the inspiration for Rules for Radicals.
[two] It was also inspired by Robert Park, a professor at the University of Chicago who saw neighborhoods as “reflections of the larger processes of an urban society.” [number four] In his novel, Alinsky outlines the techniques he created and used as a template for potential community organizing for the new generation of activists who arose from the 1960s.

Valdis Krebs just wrote in as a follow-up to our Red-Blue Roundtable earlier this month to say that he’s updated his network map of Amazon political book transactions for October, and it’s his most interesting map yet, showing some pretty striking activity among our customers that his methods reveal better than our own Election 2008 map (snazzy though it is). Among his findings: Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is being purchased by red customers (presumably doing some amateur oppo research), while purchasers of Obama’s books form their own network, with little link to other political books, at least at this point late in the election season. Also worth noting: Blue consumers are overwhelmingly buying Patriotic Grace, a new book by Republican columnist Peggy Noonan arguing that the country should unite behind whichever candidate is elected. (By the way, you can listen to my interview with Noonan from a few weeks ago.) Here’s his latest map (click on it to see a larger version) and a link to his most recent post on The Network Thinker’s blog. [Tom]]
