    Saul Alinsky died in 1972. This interview happened decades ago. His enduring techniques have proven successful. This video clip demonstrates the greatness of a nation that can bring two great, clever, quick-witted yet opposing thoughtleaders in an interview together to stimulate ideas.

  • Goes to show that any idea – good or bad, especially bad ones such as this, can live on for generations.

    If by “techniques” you are referring to the radical overthrow of our government by creating sustained chaos or using deception/lies to achieve your goals, or destroying whole generations of children through propaganda, or the murder of millions all over the world, I guess you could call him successful, Joanne. Mr. Alinsky is more than likely spending a lot of time with his mentor, the first community organizer.

  • Richard Cancemi says:

    Is Chicago an incubator for growing thugs and communists? People, like Alinsky (and the Obamas and Clintons and countless others who are anti-capitalism), grow wealthy manipulating the poor with their class warfare ideation. The poor stay poor and these radicals grow rich and become “fat Cats” like the ones they denounce.
    Alinsky told the poor to renounce the middle class because under communism there is no middle class…only the “haves and the have-nots”.
