All those who are happy to see the 4 Freedoms replaced by 4 Submissions, are our opponents. They don't care about the truth, or addressing our arguments, but merely attack us using Alinsky's dirty tricks. We should do the likewise.

Alinsky's 12 Rules for Radicals

  • Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have
    Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.  (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
  • Never go outside the expertise of your people
    It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.  (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
  • Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy
    Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.  (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
  • Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules
    If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.  (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
  • Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon
    There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.  (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
  • A good tactic is one your people enjoy
    They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)
  • A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag
    Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)
  • Keep the pressure on. Never let up
    Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.  (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
  • The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself
    Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
    (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)
  • If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive
    Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)
  • The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative
    Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)
  • Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it
    Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

These are the people we are dealing with.

Hi Kinana, to be honest with you I'm using the word in a very loose, general sense, but I'm doing some research soon I hope which will perhaps clarify my own thoughts on the matter. Subsidiarity is good, but of course the onus, at least right now, is on the powerful to devolve power, and in my opinion that ain't going to happen because the state is too bureaucratic & people aren't very good at letting go of power, or of their own jobs. The EU spouts about 'subsidiarity' so that should tell us something, & politicians have been spouting about 'big society' for a lot longer than Cameron. I'll get back to you when I've researched a bit more. At the moment I'm halfway through Daniel Hannan's 'Twelve MOnths to Renew Britain' or whatever it's called, which is also big on localism. I have my own ideas, & they start with the little man, but sometimes you need to compare with what others are saying before you're sure what you're saying, if you see what I mean.
Comment by Kinana on November 30, 2010 at 13:39
Pat, is 'localism' similar to the medieval idea of subsidiarity?
Comment by Alan Lake on November 30, 2010 at 2:46
Ahh, I wasn't aware of Burke's 'Little Platoons', but I was already a fan of his ideas so I like him even more :-)

"...and of course its in the tradition of Schumacher's "Small is Beautiful" concept. But altho its a great weapon, I don't think that in itself will be enough...'

And Edmund Burke's 'Little Platoons'. But surely the surest way to enable apolitical administration is through localism.

I'm aware of the Tea Party but not too well up on them yet. However I'll look them up as soon as I get a chance and see what they have to say about localism. thanks for the tip.

Excellent. Classical liberalism it is then. Re. your last paragraph, I couldn't agree with you more. Let's get brainstorming. As you say, there's a lot of work to be done.
Comment by Alan Lake on November 29, 2010 at 16:00
Yes and Yes and Yes!

(1) We have a 2-headed enemy. Some people call the Leftist threat 'Collectivism' and sometimes I call them Liberals in the sense of liberalism gone astray and become a threat to those very liberal freedoms.

(2) The funding IS one of the big issues, and those guys have been very sneaky and cunning in getting funding for political projects out of supposedly apolitical governmental bodies. How? Well they all went to Uni to train in this stuff, while the rest of us tried to learn something useful, something fascinating or something beautiful (engineering, science or Art). Then they left University, gravitated to positions of power, then grabbed the money that the rest of us were busy enabling.

(3) I think the Localism idea is a great one; it ties in with the Tea Party rejection of big government (which goes right back to the founding fathers of the US); and of course its in the tradition of Schumacher's "Small is Beautiful" concept. But altho its a great weapon, I don't think that in itself will be enough.

We need to add to it a ruthless return to the principle of secular government and apolitical administration. We need to forcefully reject, on principle, any attempt to promote the political project of Islam from government funds, and the same goes for some of the Leftist projects which try sneak in under the skirt of various other labels. There's a lot of work ahead!
Comment by Pat McCrann on November 29, 2010 at 13:27
Thanks, and yes it's hard work isn't it? The evidence seems to show though that we have a two headed enemy, which is the radical Left and Islam, and it seems the left is adept at funding itself through state funding. I know this is the case from other stuff I've read. The answer of course is to cut off their funding, and the only way to do that is, in my opinion, through a return to localism. It's the buzz word amongst politicians so let's call their bluff instead of leaving it in the sound bite column. Small local councils who in turn fund government and a new contract between tax payers and council along the lines of, 'Here's what and how much we're prepared to fund. These are the services we're prepared to pay for and this is how much'. I believe David Cameron at the election of the Coalition suggested council tax payers making a new contract with councils re. what they were prepared to pay for. Unless I dreamt it. Either way I think it's the route that needs to be taken.

Well Done! It is a tough slog reading all this stuff on Islam, and if our stupid governments were doing even half their job we wouldn't have to do this. We only need a few people who have covered the important material, because the rest of our fighters provide support in other ways.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
