Saul Alinsky

from my email:

Died: June 12, 1972 

Education: University of Chicago, Ph.B. 1930, University of Chicago Graduate School, criminology, 1930–


Occupation: Community organizer, writer, political activist 

Notable works: Reveille for Radicals (1946); Rules for Radicals (1971) 

Saul David Alinsky was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals. From that book here are Saul's thoughts on how to create a social state: 

There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is the most important. 

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people 

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. 

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. 

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state. 

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income) 

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. 

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools. 

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. 

Any of this sound familiar?
