To Have and Have Not: Alinsky, Beck, Satan and Me, Part IV
The epigraph for the first chapter of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals which explains “The Purpose” of the rules is from the book of Job: “The life of man upon earth is a warfare…”
For Alinsky and his Machiavellian radicals politics is war. No matter what they say publicly or pretend to be, they are at war. They are at war even though no other factions in the political arena are at war, because everyone else embraces the System which commits all parties to compromise and peaceful resolutions of conflicts. For tactical reasons they will also make compromises, but the entire mentality and approach of Alinsky radicals to politics is based on their dedication to conducting a war against the System itself. Don’t forget it (although if history is any indication Republicans almost invariably will).
