A racially integrated community is a chronological term timed from the entrance of the first black family to the exit of the last white family.
Always remember the first rule of power tactics; power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
History is a relay of revolutions.
Last guys don't finish nice.
Life is a corrupting process from the time a child learns to play his mother off against his father in the politics of when to go to bed; he who fears corruption fears life.
Once you accept your own death, all of a sudden you're free to live. You no longer care about your reputation. You no longer care except so far as your life can be used tactically to promote a cause you believe in.
Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Tactics mean doing what you can with what you have.
The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.
We must believe that it is the darkest before the dawn of a beautiful new world. We will see it when we believe it.
Saul Alinsky on "Change"...
From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:
"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."
Saul Alinsky, The Latter Rain (Latter-Rain.com is a "Liberation Theology" commie-left website -etl)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
A Landslide Mandate For Change
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
Please tell me that this bastard Alinsky is buried somewhere so I can go piss on his grave.
Thanks for posting this.
#13 above - Freeze your target, etc. - When I read that a few months ago, I saw that was exactly what the left did to Palin and her family.
It’s rather effective. They have managed to marginalize her to an awful lot of the population. Such a shame.
Worth another look...
Shouldn’t this “L. DAVID ALINSKY” be receiving some critical coverage by now?...
Is he gay?
A druggie? Pedophile?
Not accusing, just asking. Who is this “L. David Alinsky”. Can he be embarrassed and taken down a peg. For what his father has done - and for which he seems to be just fine about.
An update to this post, please chime in since The Chicago papers are praising Alinsky
Alinsky re the Empty Chair Non Negotiations ..Not taking place in the House...BUMP
God Save Anerica!
