How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:I did some research and while the above is all true, it is not attributable Saul Alinsky, nor can I find anyone to credit for it. Having said that, it most certainly is a road map to a social state
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people
2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This
will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
Anyone out there think that this stuff isn't happening today in the United States of America.? In case you hadn't noticed, all eight rules are currently in play Can we turn around the eight social state agendas that have been insidiously injected into our culture by Obama and his extreme socialist regime? Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin's original scheme for world conquesty communism, under Russian rule.
Stalin described his converts as "Useful Idiots." The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S. It may be too late to reverse the decline.
As for Saul Alinksky, his most famous works is "Rules for Radicals". Here are those rules. As you read them, you can see how well the democrat party has adopted them.
See my notes in [Bold Brackets].
Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. [The GOP's perception of the MSM being in the Dems pocket has them all but frozen like a deer in the head lights. The fact is, this regime's policies are now entrenched and the American public can feel it, regardless of how rosy the MSM paints the economy. In this case, the GOP should be pounding away at the result of Obamanomics - all day, every day, every time they are in front of a camera or microphone, they need to be attributing what American's are experiencing to Obama's policies.]
The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people. When an action is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear, and retreat.
The third rule is: Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity. [Bill Clinton's perjury about sex in the oval office vs say the treatment of Clarence Thomas]
The fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage. [Romney's dog strapped to the roof of the car, anyone?]
The sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy. If your people are not having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic. [Planned Parenthood?]
The seventh rule: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time, after which it becomes a ritualistic commitment, like going to church on Sunday mornings. [How many Obama "pivots" in strategy have been reported vs how many actual change in the regime's policy?]
The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose. [IRS and Eric Holder - 'nough said]
The ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. [GOP's "war on women"]
The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign. [OFA - Obama for America morphing into OFA - Organizing for America]
The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside; this is based on the principle that every positive has its negative.
The twelfth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying "You're right — we don't know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us." [The GOP does have alternatives, unfortunately the MSM - even FNC - will not report them. We need someone to actively and repeatedly pound home the alternatives proposed by the GOP.]
The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. [The entire 2012 campaign for POTUS against Mitt Romney. From the "Binder of women, the dog on the roof, the off shore investments, etc..." Incidentally, if the GOP refuses to do this to Hillary Clinton beginning TODAY, they will lose 2016 regardless of the candidate. HRC could be kept out of the race if she is vilified enough (and rightly, so) between now and 2015.]
