Never heard of Saul Alinsky ? Yes you have...
Hi All,
I came across this in my travels this morning.
UPDATE - Unfortunately it appears the video I linked to has been removed.
I have found it difficult to find another video as good,
but this is quite reasonable and informative.
How Obama Applies the Alinsky Rules podcasts.

The description of the tactics to be employed struck several chords to me,
(as I'm sure it will with many here)
regarding various climate change discussions on various forums I have visited.
Saul Alinsky and these tactics are something I was completely unaware of,
but it strikes me now I have seen it being employed many, many times.

Fore warned, is fore armed..

Saul Alinsky's (he wrote the book Rules for Radicals) tactics are,

Do not talk about the facts, but do -

1) Pick the target.

2) Freeze it.

3) Personalise it.

4) Polarise it.

Professor Obama used to lecture about Saul Alinsky and his writings / advocated methods........

I'm not sure if this post is worth repeating elsewhere in the forum,
I thought about the gazebo, or politics section.
I think it something many here would benefit from watching.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.  

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
Hi All,
I have just come across this rather good song.

No Rules for Radicals

Worth a listen.
