Many people have heard about his book Rules for Radicals, but most don’t want, or have time to read it, and for good reason. Well, now you don’t have to. A series of 3 posts will summarize his major teachings, which constitute the progressive movement’s American “play book”, and they follow it religiously!

This is what Americans are up against folks. Sun Tzu, the great Chinese strategist said:

“Know your enemy as you know yourself and you will never be defeated in a thousand battles.”

We need to de-cloak Alinsky in order to understand why progressive democrats can take such seemingly hypocritical, and Anti-American positions.

Alinsky teaches his disciples (ex. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton…) that morality is open to one’s interpretation. Mold morality to cloak one’s radical actions and intentions. Could this be the reason behind why progressives attack Christianity?

Specifically Alinsky Preaches that:

Machiavelli’s major weakness was his blindness “to the necessity for moral clothing to all acts and motives.”

“All effective actions require the passport of morality.”

“Morality, so-called, becomes the continuum as self interests shift.”

“Moral rationalization is indispensable at all times of action whether to justify the selection or the use of ends or means.”

Alinsky teaches 11 variations on Machiavelli’s “The Ends Justify the Means.” With this many variations, what actions CAN’T be justified? Practical examples in the Democrat Party abound.How about Harry Reid justifying his lies on the Senate floor during the 2012 campaign when he claimed that Romney did not pay taxes? Reid’s “ends justify the means” morality: “Romney didn’t win, did he?”

Alinsky’s 11 Rules of Ethics of Means and Ends: Nuances to “The Ends Justify the Means”

  1. “One’s Concerns with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue.”
  2. “The judgment of the ethics of means is dependent upon the political position of those sitting in judgment.”
  3. “In war the end justifies almost any means.”
  4. “Judgment must be made in the context of the times in which the action occurred and not from any other chronological vantage point.”
  5. “Concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa.”
  6. “The less important the end to be desired, the more one can afford to engage in ethical evaluations of means.”
  7. “Generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics.”
  8. “The morality of a means depends upon whether the means is being employed at a time of imminent defeat or imminent victory.”
  9. “Any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition as being unethical.”
  10. “You do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.”
  11. “Goals must be phrased in general terms like “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity”,”Of the Common Welfare”,”Pursuit of Happiness”, or “Bread and Peace.”
