Saul Alinsky was an American Leftist, whose book Rules For Radicals gives a great insight into the methodology of the Left the world over. He did not discover those rules, he only complied them, as it is evident that the Left has followed those rules from its beginning. The rules are essentially a guide for the radical as to how to agitate, with the sole aim of capturing power. His basic thesis is that to seize power from the Haves, a radical must not be bound by any laws of morality the Haves have put in place. There should be no ends & means confusion in the mind of a radical. Upstaging the Haves is the only moral thing, methods are amoral. And of course like all Leftists, he left unsaid as to what to do with power once it has been captured. Simply because no Leftist knows.
Over at newenglishreview.org, D L Adams has a very good discussion of Alinsky rules, and its influence on current American politics, and on its present Leaders:
“The fact that our current President and Secretary of State (wannabe President Hillary Clinton), are followers of Alinsky is beyond disturbing. That so many Americans know Alinsky is heartening but few know the motivations behind the agitation that is so central to the Alinsky method and further what it means when a professional agitator acquires the power that they claim to require. What kind of effective governance is possible from the permanent agitator when the reins of power are handed to him/her? We have seen the results.
The problem with the Alinsky method is that the end game is amorphous; the end game is the acquisition of power but little is said of what to do with that power once acquired. The core of Alinsky’s method is destruction, destruction of the “system” that allows a disparity of wealth. There is no discussion of what is to replace this system once it is brought down. However, there is little doubt that Alinsky’s idea of a better “system” is one that brings forced equivalence or Marxism. Fundamentally, the struggle to get power is the essence of Alinsky, what to do with the power once acquired is another matter altogether.” (from the article)
