  •  Republicans & community organizing don't mix (7+ / 0-)

    There's a basic flaw in any Republican plan to use community organizing and Alinsky's approaches. And the flaw is that Rules for Radicals only work for radicals -- i.e., for a people who are working on behalf of a community to demand change from the powerful who do not intend to concede anything. The overall approach won't work for those trying to keep everything as it was in the 1980s or 1950s or 1920s.

    Republicans will fall back on the strategy that has worked so well for them in the past: they will convince themselves that they are victims and they will dig their heels in to stop any progressive movement. Or so I'm guessing.
