An American High School Diploma was once a ticket to an amazing affluence of an American Middle Class standard of living on a single income. Countless Americans enjoyed luxuries that might have been coveted by kings and queens of past generations.
Back then, College was still “higher learning” and so the brainiacs that had potential to become the next generation of doctors, lawyers, scientists and scholars could leverage excellent performance in their “free school” to receive the specialized, focused and advanced training that might help them realize their true potential.

I certainly did not like the dishonesty of his tactics to promote grievance culture. Alinsky reveals how he basically lies and cheats to rattle chains. And his “great work” of antics and often vulgar tactics helped to convert semi-appreciative welfare dependent blacks from an attitude of… “Well, you can’t complain if you didn’t pay for it” to self righteousness, indignation and rage against the very Americans paying their bills.

1. Alinsky acknowledges that tyranny is required “at first” to bring the “change” he assumes his readers desire. He makes no effort to address this concern other than to jest that yet ANOTHER revolution might be in order if power isn’t magically given back to “the people.”
2. The power of ridicule shouldn’t be underestimated. And of course I find easy to ridicule lefties. They line up the jokes and I deliver the punchlines.

There is literally nothing we will not consider when striving to relieve the peasant masses of their overabundance. By demonizing CO2, we have even found a way to tax the very air that they breathe.
Liberals ideologues are true connoisseurs of statism. They will interrupt most any discussion to offer their keen discernments on the various flavors and fragrances of the baby vomit of a big state solutions to move their own personal passion to control others “Forward!”
They’ll invariably inform that National Socialism in Germany wasn’t really “Socialism” but “Fascism.” Not “left” but “right.” And then they’ll go on to advertise their ignorance with proclamation that Socialism has no relationship to Communism nor Marxism.
