I've mentioned Alinsky several times in the past. I have two books "Rules for Radicals" and "The Soft Revolution." Rules is from Alinsky. Soft Revolution is not. I read Soft revolution in my Sophomore year, and Rules my Junior year. I made sure I kept them after I graduated and went into the military. This is how liberals are beginning their revolution. Below are some quotes from Alinsky.

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.)

"They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The organizers first job is to create the issues or problems, and organizations must be based on many issues. The organizer must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom -- Lucifer." ~ Saul Alinsky

"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage." ~ Saul Alinsky

"Organization for action will now and in the decade ahead center upon America's white middle class. That is where the power is. ... Our rebels have contemptuously rejected the values and the way of life of the middle class. They have stigmatized it as materialistic, decadent, bourgeois, degenerate, imperialistic, war-mongering, brutalized and corrupt. They are right; but we must begin from where we are if we are to build power for change, and the power and the people are in the middle class majority." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The organizer must become schizoid, politically, in order to slip into becoming a true believer. Before men can act an issue must be polarized. Men will act when they are convinced their cause is 100 percent on the side of the angels and that the opposition are 100 percent on the side of the devil. He knows there can be no action until issues are polarized to this degree." ~ Saul Alinsky

"If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The fourth rule is: "Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules." You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired results." ~ Saul Alinsky

"It is a world not of angels but of angles, where men speak of moral principles but act on power principles; a world where we are always moral and our enemies always immoral." ~ Saul Alinsky

"The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength." ~ Saul Alinsky

"Never let a crisis go to waste" ~ Saul Alinsky

“Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear, and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

I think we see most of these in practice on this site. If you've read Alinsky or not doesn't matter. If you didn't/ don't know you use them, then you're being used by others as a useful idiot.

    You said the Alinsky strategy is to "pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Are saying the left picked Trump? Or something more amorphous like Trump voters?

    You're not using the whole issue. "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.)"

    You picked Trump before he came down those stairs. The thing you're targeting is the white middle class and trying to polarize it by picking individuals and small groups. (the prime target to take the government). And of course, any means possible, regardless of any "moral issues" are justified if the country is taken. This is why I keep harping on the "Reeducation camps." They fall perfectly into Alinsky's workbook.

    Whenever conservatives do something, even if the sheep have already done it many times, you attack us. If we bring it up that you did it, you just don't answer that like it didn't happen. This is because you hold us to a moral standard, but you are without the moral issues and constraints by justifying the endgame.

    I was just wondering how many folks on the site recognize these in either recent or present history. And how many of you have fought for these causes.

    8 steps to topple a nation and create a socialist state
    By Saul Alinsky


    There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    I will add the forward and dedication in "Rules for Radicals" the sheep follow this well.

    "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: 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.”
    Alinsky, Saul. Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group."
