A great thinker and activist whose book ‘The Rules for Radicals’ remains one of my mantras. He was a great community organizer and stood with and for the legion of oppressed peoples everywhere. His treatises on how to organize down-trodden communities and gain power from an oppressor are still relevant even today. It’s no surprise that he influenced such powerful luminaries as President Obama, Secretary Clinton and Former President Clinton.
Always remember the first rule of power tactics; power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
