"Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals" was written by community organizer Saul Alinsky in 1971. It has become the de facto progressive manifesto for effecting political change.

Opening: "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."

Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton met with Saul Alinsky several times in 1968 while she was writing her college thesis on his community organization theories. President Barack Obama's education was also greatly influenced by Alinsky and his theories.
