Saul Alinsky was a community worker around Chicago from the 1950s to 1970s and used quite radical methods for organising local communities of low paid workers and the unemployed - in his book " Rules for Radicals" he outlined some of the tactics that he used - many of which were quite successful in getting the message across to those in power. I wonder if we had someone like Alinsky around today, would he be able to enthuse people today the same as in the 50s to 70s? The nearest you have to Alinsky today is Michael Moore who uses some of the same methods - I emailed Moore to ask him if he has ever read Alinsky but to date I have not heard from him ( probably busy doing his next movie or writing next book!!) I would urge you to read Alinskys books and get involved in your local community - change only happens at the margins
