"Rub Raw the Sores of Social Discontent" ~~Saul Alinsky
"The despair is there; now it's up to us to go in and rub raw the sores of discontent, galvanize them for radical social change. We'll give them a way to participate in the democratic process, a way to exercise their rights as citizens and strike back at the establishment that oppresses them, instead of giving in to apathy. We'll start with specific issues -- taxes, jobs, consumer problems, pollution -- and from there move on to the larger issues: pollution in the Pentagon and the Congress and the board rooms of the megacorporations.

We'll not only give them a cause, we'll make life goddamn exciting for them again -- life instead of existence. We'll turn them on. "
-- Saul Alinsky
