Saul Alinsky (1909–1972) was an American community activist and political theorist whose teachings have had a profound effect on the radical Democratic agenda and the philosophy of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In 1971, right before his death, he published Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, which is a book about successfully running a movement for cultural change.
Rather than list his 13 rules for radicals, let me sum them up for you in how they are practically applied to a society. And this is exactly the same blueprint the Nazis used in post-WWI Germany.
• Words and Terms are Redefined
• History is Revised and Rewritten
• Questions are Not Encouraged Nor Allowed
• Rules are Established
• Compliance and Obedience is Expected / Demanded
• Gatekeepers are Empowered
• Power Now Rests with the Few and Not the Many
• Decision and Authority Flow from the Top Down
• All Organizations Naturally Seek Control
• Double and Triple-Down Until No Dissent Exists
By the way, this is also how control is exercised over the church by the clergy, denominational leaders, and family gatekeepers. It is not a pretty sight.
It Only Takes One Person to Make a Difference
But God had something completely different in mind when He instituted His church. And today, we are going to see how He empowered, not just the clergy, but all His people with His Spirit and gave them bold access to His throne of grace (Heb. 4:16). The implications are life-changing.
Remember, it only takes one person to make a difference.
Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; but by (who) a man (singular) of understanding and knowledge right will be prolonged – Proverbs 28:2.
