Battlefield America 14 The rules of the game part 7
For this week’s broadcast of Behind the Lines, the probe of the premier activist ‘how-to’ book enters the next phase. While previous episodes discuss attributes and skills, this episode explores introducing the activist to the situation. Successfully entering into an environment to enable change requires specific actions on the part of the ‘organizer’. We highlight and scrutinize these first steps because they determine the success or failure of the enterprise.
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.
Please join us for this week’s episode of Behind the Headlines – where the true story is behind the headlines.

About: Behind The Headlines
This program will embark on an investigation . . .
This investigation examines the headlines that create and influence our current world. Exploring the headlines and the stories surrounding them will educate us into the forces at work in the world at the local and national level.
During this investigation, we should uncover the sources of the ideas and processes directing the events of the day — these discoveries could be helpful to ourselves and those around us.
Also, we will be discovering sources of information that remove the myths permeating throughout our immediate circle and society as a whole. By reaching into these sources, we will replace the ignorance of the current culture with facts that encourage ourselves and educate our neighbor.
Interspersed within the broadcast, time may permit discussion of products and websites that provide tools, devices, and other information. These notices intend to prepare ourselves for distressing times and protect ourselves from ignorance and deception.
Expect to find things that will make you upset, disturbed, and agitated. However, let these thought-provoking discoveries motivate, encourage, and educate yourself and those around you.
