Dunno. Guess I got stuck on the notion that the ideas that Alinsky articulates go back centuries and I figured I’d ask.

I’m sorry. I was simply adding some historical information to the discussion, some background for the idea of Alinsky. I wasn’t saying one side or the other was making a conscience use of these principles or not, that wasn’t the thrust of my comment, and I really don’t care. Politics is the art of the possible, that’s the goal and the is various concepts and techniques that political creatures use to reach their goal, it’s like breathing, some subtle and some not so subtle.

All I was saying to you is my comments was not a right or left issue.
