The title for Chapter 5 of ‘Rules for Radicals’ unveils Mr. Alinsky’s
opinion regarding the fundamental quality of a successful organizer – ‘Communication’. The chapter contains his viewpoints regarding its necessity and effectiveness. Throughout the chapter, he endeavors to substantiate his theories and maxims. He reinforces his view of communication’s importance via a myriad cases involving himself and/or others. Drawing upon these examples, Mr. Alinsky attempts a correlation between assumed understanding and clarity of speech via mutual experiences.
Throughout the chapter, we comment on his use of ‘examples’. In actuality, the instances he portrays as ‘teachable moments’ highlight gross manipulations of unsuspecting individuals. These events expose specific behavioral patterns and their internal motivations. Also, we gain answers and solutions regarding prevalent ‘personalities’ within current political movements. Finally, we acquire essential information that protect us from deceptive manipulations and detrimental influences.
