One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

"Saul Alinsky’s radicalism was expressed in his 1971 book, “Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals.” In that book, Alinsky said, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom -- Lucifer.” Alinsky never saw himself as the devil, but as some radical angel who could bedevil “the Establishment” and force it to change to assuage pressures from community organizations. " (Human Events Article)

Beck on Alinsky from June 2009.


This is a bit dry in presentation but great content. Skip to 3:33 for the portion on Alinksy.

I find myself asking myself this question. More often today than in recent years: Why are these ridiculous people still here? I mean, WHY are they HERE?

Isn't there someplace else they would be more welcome? Someplace else they could try to control a population rather than fight the windmill that is we the people ... basically bred to be free. I mean, realistically, they'll never get their way. The conservatives who have quietly opposed these so-called "radicals" for decades have begun to make their voices heard. The more arrogant these "radicals" become, the louder and more effective our voices become.

I would much rather ask the question, "What wonderful things can we do with them gone?" than ask, "WHY are they HERE?"

RWL, they want the power, not the "utopia." Utopia's no fun if you're one of the unwashed, downtrodden slaves of the state.
