#74- Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals Part 2


Scott, Karl, and Brett Veinotte of the School Sucks Project continue their discussion of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. 

Picking up where they left off from last week, the trio polishes off the remaining rules on Alinsky’s list. Scott says, “What he outlines here is pretty much the way things work. I don’t think he invented anything. I think he discovered, codified, and learned how to teach what really works and what really happens to people.”

According to Alinksy himself, “The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”

Even if you’re unwilling to embrace the tactics, you’d be unwise to ignore them.

Tune in to hear more on Alinsky-style organizing, real-world influences, and the rules continuing relevance.
