summary of saul alinsky's rules for radicals.

a cursory view of these provides immediate reminders of the democrat attack machine.

AKA Hillary's thesis.

Mentor and hero also! Clearly the SOP of the neo-marxist wing of the democratic party, which is all but a few.

Juvenile hogwash. Still, one should be familiar with it so that they can identify and defang it.

juvenile hogwash.

The rules or the idea that they use it?

Yeah, I think the editorial boards of the msm use it as a bible.

Sounds like the conduct of every stupid leftist I've ever come in contact with. Fits in perfectly with the conduct of the anti-Bush crowd.

that was a good one!

the wall street journal before the 1992 election editorialized:

whoever wins this presidential election will be blessed with a very good economy.

it was only the stupid people who voted democrat that didn't know this.

I saw Chaaaly Rangle tonight on H & C spouting some hogwash about how GW, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and Cheney had some super-secret meeting IN 1998 to plan the destruction of Saddam Hussein and the invasion of Iraq.

Looks like he's taken the Rules to heart, eh?

yeah, rangle's definitely on the far left.

they know what they're doing.

the democrats do not approach any doings with this country or the republicans in GOOD FAITH.

I'd flag FR's premier Alinksy know-it-all, but she has been banned. Our loss.

Google Search on FR Archives for Saul Alinsky. The Rules have been posted before.

It is interesting to compare Alinsky's rules with David Horowitz's guidelines for political warfare, which says conservatives need to fight with leftist tactics.

I've only briefly looked through Horowitz's rules for the first time in years, but it's interesting that both he and Alinsky take a mainly psychological approach that plays off the subrational aspects of human nature. I don't think such an approach is compatible with republicanism, which is based on the belief(fact? hope?) that people are capable of acting reasonably most of the time, or at least more capable than style-savvy aristocrats and monarchs.

Horowitz claims some people try to treat politics as a religion, where one cannot compromise at all. Well, there is certainly such a thing as a civil religion, and the politics he and Alinsky promote tend to undermine that. Alinsky, as I recall, says outright that this is a good thing. I don't know if Horowitz has addressed the question.

Letting your opponent set the terms of the debate is an easy way to lose it. Letting your opponent make the rules of political warfare seems much the same to me.

thanks very much.

the marxist left is chilastic or milleninarianist in its outlook. i think that's why it sticks with so many people for so long, even after reason and experience have displaced it.

horowitz in "radical son" wrote that his father never gave up the idea of a communist revolution in his adopted america. he died embittered.
