Montreal's rules for radicals
I no longer believe the rioting in Montreal is about tuition rates.
It may have started that way, but the demonstrations have been co-opted by union leaders such as Sid Ryan of the Ontario Federation of Labour, Ken Lewenza of the Canadian Auto Workers and the Vancouver-based Adbusters Media Foundation, which launched Occupy Wall Street.
Seeing the waning of the Occupy movement, they are following the advice of Saul D. Alinsky, the communist community organizer who wrote Rules for Radicals.
Alinsky wrote, “The organizer goes with the action. His approach must be free, open-ended, curious, sensitive to any opportunities, any handles to grab on to, even though they involve other issues than those he may have in mind at that particular time.”
In other words, when the students hit the streets, get in there and put some gas on the fire. Use them for your purpose.
