"Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats." -- P.J. O'Rourke
"Banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than 20 standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." -- Thomas Jefferson 1802

"Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play" -- Joseph Goebbels
"If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper you are misinformed." --Mark Twain

Rules for Radicals provides the organizer with a tactical style for community organization that assumes an adversarial relationship between groups of people in which one either dominates or is dominated.
The first rule of power tactics is: power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.
Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.
The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself.
In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
One of the criteria for picking the target is the targets vulnerability the other important point in the choosing of a target is that it must be a personification, not something general and abstract.
The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.
