Chapter 7 of ‘Rules for Radicals’ unveils Mr. Alinsky’s ideas toward introducing the activist to the situation. This chapter, entitled ‘In the Beginning’, sets forth specific actions the ‘organizer’ must perform at the outset. These specific procedures cement the power base, establish the purpose, and create the reputation of the ‘organizer’. Mr. Alinsky explains his viewpoints regarding how to influence and manipulate individuals to benefit the activist and the agenda. Throughout the chapter, he employs various illustrations to substantiate his claims.
Throughout the chapter, we investigate and closely examine these ‘illustrations’. In actuality, these examples demonstrates flagrant dishonesty toward (and deceitful manipulation of) impressionable individuals. Highlighting these instances unveil specific character traits and expose questionable practices. Also, we answer questions and gain knowledge regarding the conduct of specific organizations and their leaders. Finally, we obtain practical guidance that inform and protect us from deceptive and unscrupulous influences.
