First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.

Rules for Radical Conservatives

Beating the Left at Its Own Game to Take Back America

Are you a frustrated conservative shocked by the bunch of far Left fanatics driving the bus—and our future—off a cliff? It’s time to fight back with the same ruthlessness that has served the radicals so well—not just now, but for the long term. And who better to reveal their strategies—and their fatal weaknesses—than one of their own? Playing on his all-too-typical hubris and good old greed, we’ve recruited well-known liberal apparatchik David Kahane to lead conservatives out of the political wilderness, whether he means to or not. Is he arrogant and obnoxious? Absolutely. Does he deliver the goods? You betcha. We’ll let Dave speak for himself: Please allow me to introduce myself. . . . My name is David and I’m going to share some secrets. I’m going to take you into the smoke-free back rooms of today’s progressive political machine to reveal how it really operates—and how you can bring it down. I’ll lay out the rules we radicals have used to run circles around you, and clue you in on how to make them work for you, too. How do I know this stuff? As the son of the sainted “Che” Kahane, I’ve been schooled in the art of seizing and holding political power as we transform America one antiquated tradition and constitutional clause at a time. Now I work in Hollywood, where I’ve perfected the game pioneered by such pros as Machiavelli, Saul Alinsky, and Al Capone, father of the immortal Chicago Way. Read on and learn from our time-tested techniques: • Know your enemy, his intentions, his weapons, and his weaknesses. You too can play relentless, on-message hardball with every scandal, hypocrisy, lie, and fundamentally flawed policy your adversaries dish up. • Become what you behold. Adopt some of our scorched-earth tactics, best described in David Mamet’s Untouchables: “They pull a knife, you pull a gun.” • Take no prisoners. Attack our premises, expose their true nature and consequences, and pin them on us, hard. • Never cede anything to the other side, philosophically speaking. Force the Left to argue facts, not emotions. We hate that. • Treat us with the same respect we give you. None. • It is better to be feared than liked, especially by your enemies. And it helps to show up for the fight. (Note to past and future Republican candidates.) Why am I telling you all this? Because I thrive on making trouble and, frankly, because I’m proud of what my team has done. Between us, I don’t think it matters if I turn over our playbook to you at this late date. I don’t think you can get it together to stop us now. Plus, I got a lot of money. Happy reading, America! You think you can take us down? Go for it. I dare you. From the Hardcover edition.

Saul Alinsky wrote Rules for Radicals 40 years ago as instructions on how to seize power. He was the original community organizer who documented how to organize others to provide power to the organizers. Alinsky was an instigator of class warfare and of the culture war. He taught liberals how to divide America by organizing communities to seize power. Because of those who practiced those rules, America is suffering. Every problem that we Americans face today can be traced back to compromises with liberal radical leaders. As it defined the rules that radicals should use to implement socialism and gain more control of governments, Rules for Conservatives defines the rules that conservatives should use to stop this incremental takeover by liberals. The Tea Party movement is determined to cut the tax burden on Americans. With decreased tax revenues, governments will have to shrink and liberals will lose power. Rules for Conservatives is the playbook for all conservatives and all Tea Party people to save America from liberal community organizers.

Elinor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals

Cooperative Alternatives Beyond Markets and States

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 160

View: 9145

Elinor Ostrom was both a groundbreaking thinker and one of the foremost economists of our age. The first and only woman to win the Nobel Prize for Economics, her revolutionary theorizing of the commons opened the way for non-capitalist economic alternatives on a massive scale. And yet, astonishingly, most modern radicals know little about her. Elinor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals fixes that injustice, revealing the indispensability of her work on green politics, alternative economics, and radical democracy. Derek Wall's analysis of her theses addresses some of the common misconceptions of her work and reveals her strong commitment to a radical ideological framework. This helpful guide will engage scholars and activists across a range of disciplines, including political economy, political science, and ecology, as well as those keen to implement her work in practice. As activists continue to reject traditional models of centralized power, Ostrom's theories will become even more crucial in creating economies that exist beyond markets and states.

Der Aufstieg der mächtigsten Privatarmee der Welt

View: 2077

Kaum jemand hatte von der Firma Blackwater gehört, als am 16. September 2007 im Irak 17 Zivilisten erschossen wurden – von einem Söldnertrupp. Schnell stellte sich heraus, dass sie zu einer Art Privatarmee gehörten, die im Irak und anderswo für die USA Krieg führt, unbemerkt von der Öffentlichkeit und immun gegen Strafverfolgung. Blackwater: die mächtigste militärische Dienst­leis­tungsfirma der Welt. Ihr Gründer Erik Prince, Multimillionär und christlicher Fundamentalist, hat beste Kontakte zur Regierung. Und erkennt nach dem 11. September 2001, wie viel Geld sich mit dem »Outsourcing« militärischer Leistungen verdienen lässt: Bushs »Krieg gegen den Terror« ist die Steilvorlage für den kometenhaften Aufstieg der Firma. Blackwaters Elitesoldaten schützen US-Politiker und Geschäftsleute im Irak – gegen ein Gehalt, von dem GIs nur träumen können. Blackwater kann bei Bedarf Truppen und eine Flugzeugflotte zur Verfügung stellen, groß genug, Regierungen zu stürzen. Blackwaters Söldner bewachen Öl-Pipelines, seine »Sicherheitskräfte« patrouillierten nach Katrina in den Straßen von New Orleans. Doch erst jetzt fällt dem US-Kongress auf, dass die martialischen Rambos keinerlei parlamentarischer Kontrolle, keiner Gerichtsbarkeit unterliegen. Mit seiner glänzend recherchierten Geschichte der Firma Blackwater zeigt Jeremy Scahill überzeugend auf, welche Gefahren der Demokratie drohen, wenn die Regierung ihr Gewaltmonopol privatisiert.


Portraits of a Destructive Passion

Radical liberals want to make America a better place, but their utopian social engineering leads, ironically, to greater human suffering. So argues David Horowitz, bestselling author in his newest book Radicals: Portraits of a Destructive Passion. From Karl Marx to Barack Obama, Horowitz shows how the idealistic impulse to make the world “a better place” gives birth to the twin cultural pathologies of cynicism and nihilism, and is the chief source of human suffering. A former liberal himself, Horowitz recounts his own brushes with radicalism and offers unparalleled insight into the disjointed ideology of liberal elites through case studies of well-known radial leftists, including Christopher Hitchens, feminist Bettina Aptheker , leftist academic Cornel West, and more. Exploring the origin and evolution of radical liberals and their progressive ideology, Radicals illustrates how liberalism is not only intellectually crippling for its adherents, but devastating to society.

Rules for Republican Radicals

Throughout the 2008 Presidential campaign, both Barack Obama and his wife Michelle peppered their speeches with quotes from a virtually unknown book, published three and a half decades earlier entitled Rules For Radicals. Written by Saul Alinsky, a notorious, militant, terrorist, and con artist, the infamous Rules For Radicals was written as a step-by-step guide for radicals who wanted to move from theory and rhetoric to actual, societal manipulation and governmental overthrow. Designed to teach terrorists how to identify the vulnerable and easily duped and organize them into a militant army, Alinsky's guide provides guidance on manipulation, quashing ethical objections, and methods designed to intimidate, harass, and extort. "Rules For REPUBLICAN Radicals" exposes the Alinksy/Obama Playbook. The first section of the book focuses on Saul Alinsky, his book Rules For Radicals, and Barack Obama who spent his entire adult life studying Alinsky, teaching Alinsky methods, or working for an Alinsky network organization. In addition to detailing the shocking background and associations of each man, Rules For Republican Radicals reveals the methods employed by Barrack Obama, a racist, militant, Marxist, as well as his ultra-liberal, anti-American cohorts, and his foreign, moneyed, backers (Team Obama), to usurp the power and rights of the American people using Alinsky techniques. Without understanding the steps that Obama took to manipulate voters, usurp the power of the democratic process, turn the media into his own personal Gestapo, and hide his radical associations and anti-American agenda in plain sight, we are powerless to combat the greatest threat in living memory to democracy and to the American Dream. By understanding the "Alinsky School" and identifying Obama's use of those manipulation techniques, we can stop reacting to Team Obama's distractions and subterfuge and start flexing the might of the American muscle against Obama's socialist agenda. "Rules For REPUBLICAN Radicals" also addresses what we can effectively and practically do to turn the socialist tide, thwart Team Obama, and rebuff the ultra-liberal, America haters. The Republican Party as it stands now is fractured and damaged. Too much time is spent reacting to liberal proposals and distractions and too little time is spent actually championing workable alternatives. Republicans have allowed their brand to be corrupted by association with both the far right fringe and with RINO politicians who pretend to value Republican ideas and values but continue to spend our money and let us down with their vote. We can not simply point the finger of blame at Democrats who were duped by Obama and expect to regain our strength. We must examine the problems within our own party, cut out the diseased organs and dead skin, and heal ourselves. While "Rules For REPUBLICAN Radicals" identifies the methods and tactics used to deceive and manipulate the American people, the book isn't just about dissecting Alinsky or revealing Team Obama's playbook. It is about re-establishing the Republican Party's conservative core beliefs and values, changing the way that the political game is played, and ultimately insuring that the best people (from all parties) are not marginalized by special interest groups, shut out by career politicians, or scared away from politics by the tabloid circus.
