Crap. Of course not. Alinsky cribbed it all from Machiavelli. All Saul did was cut the beautiful, fancy prose and make “The Prince” digestible for simpler minds.

re: #246 jaunte

I think some of that Alinsky list came from Sun Tzu.

See, now I’ve read both Sun Tzu and Machiavelli. If they’re the source of his ideas, then reading Alinsky would be redundant and useless.
