Fightback by Alinsky Techniques

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.)

People are now recognizing that Trump appears to have adopted Alinsky techniques.  I said years ago we should fight even dirtier than the Left do.

Have'nt read this book in its' entirety as yet, just numerous exerpts, and it looks high quality ;

I've just finished Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.  Everyone should read it, and especially Tommy should have read it 10 years ago. Its also available as an audiobook.

There are many things I could say about it, but until you can read it yourself, perhaps the most important thing is this.  Alinsky is thoroughly embedded all around us.  We are now living in an Alinskyite structure.  We should not see the dirty tricks of the progressive left as morally reprehensible.  That's like saying it was a dirty trick of the moon to only have 1/6th gravity so all its atmosphere floated away and the astronauts had to wear space suits.  The moon is what it is: its up to us to adapt to it.

Imagine how soon this would stop, if the BNP paid to have Twitter say that 1000 prominent Libtards were following them on Twitter.

CARSON: Outgrowing Alinsky-style name-calling

'Unfortunately, this type of infantile adolescent behavior is still quite prevalent in our current political environment. Instead of “capping” their opponents, many in the political class engage in hyperbolic demagoguery in an attempt to demonize those who disagree with them. This is not surprising, because in his book “Rules For Radicals,” Saul Alinsky, the original radical community organizer and societal change agent, says you should never have a rational discussion with your opponent. Doing so would humanize him, and your goal is to demonize him. With this tactic, he states that you can incur your opponent’s wrath, causing him to respond angrily, and in many cases, irrationally, which then provides an opportunity to use that irrational response against him.

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)"
