“Evolution of Community Organizing”
Rules for Radicals is deemed the response to Machiavelli’s The Prince?. How to take power from those who seek to retain it. Saul Alinsky was not the first person to organize a rebellion. Organizing has been the cornerstone of human movement and development since the days of Moses. As the days of technology and digital organizing play a larger role in building coalitions we must be able to adapt with the movement. I look to engage in a discussion of how to continue organizing with new challenges our society will face.
