Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky

was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing
A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage -- the political paradise of communism.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security of familiar experience; they need a bridge to cross from their own experience to a new way. A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Theres another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The establishment can accept being screwed, but not being laughed atMore Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fact that people are poor or discriminated against doesn't necessarily endow them with any special qualities of justice, nobility, charity or compassion.More Saul Alinsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
