So if the ideas are over 600 years old, then how the hell is Alinsky a barometer of the current left? Wouldn’t he then just be another in a long line of people who’ve said similar things for centuries?

And yes, you’re right. I’ve never read Alinsky. Never felt the need to read him, either. It just never interested me at all.

Go back and read my comments on this VERY CAREFULLY. Not once in my comments was I referring to the right or the left, was I? I was commenting on the antiquity of these political concepts.

Interesting how you assumed that my comments had anything to do with a certain side.

Alinsky Rule #1 “Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have…” You’re thinking I was taking sides.
