Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky

was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing
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.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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.)More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From the moment an organizer enters a community, he lives, dreams, eats, breathes, sleeps only one thing, and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.More Saul Alinsky quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
