The Discovery

We recently discovered that 2 members of our board are definitely Alinsky archive followers.

But are they lovers of Alinsky?

Or just think they love Alinsky?

So far, it doesn’t seem so much but definitely, but when it comes to government and politics, they definitely follow and admire Alinsky, his ways, and his Rules…

We can say this as they have been pushing the different Alinsky viewpoints every time there is a tragedy — such as Paris…

Now, given they were also valuable contributing members on the board, we were confused.

The advice they provide is definitely capitalism archive at its best…

What else to do then – since we discovered there were these clashing boundaries — as to discover where these boundaries lie?

And just where did they stand?

Or do they truly know where they stand?

Do they embrace Alinsky only with politics and government (some of the ways can be found here in an archived WSJ post)?

Or do they believe there are definite advantages of capitalism — which, if you know anything about Alinsky, is anti-capitalism in the first place?

Or do they mix it up a bit? Taking what they liked the best from both worlds?

Are they embracers of crony capitalism? of capitalism? of Alinsky?

Bottom line:
just WHAT do they stand for?

Truthfully, we had to find out as we didn’t want any of Alinsky, Cloward-Piven nor any other Progressive philosophies slowly creeping their way into our business — as creeping in is how most Progressives gain their ground…

We also didn’t want anyone on the board who didn’t know what they stood for, conscientiously or not…

Progressive tactics call for introducing something of their philosophy at a convenient moment and chipping away at the foundation until everything finally collapses…

It’s how our country got to where we are at today — way too many just cannot discern the difference between Progressivism and Capitalism…

One only has to start questioning any Hillary or Sanders follower and it becomes painfully obvious — there are no convictions save the social good…

And when society comes before the individual, then the individual is their enemy, not their friend — this is true in ALL Socialism forms, period.

An Experiment

We knew we couldn’t find out what they stood for without spending more time with them individually — so that was the first condition…

This was especially true as they were close friends outside of work as well as with their work… so what we were going to talk about had to be presented as vague but worth their while nonetheless…

Which made timing very important as well — talking to both without one giving the other feedback was important in finding out where they stood individually…

Equally important was finding out if any of their answers changed afterward once they had time to chat…

The next step was to introduce our new business plans for 2016 reeking of Alinsky as well as crony capitalism, leaving capitalism out it altogether, and see which they favored…

As you really can’t mix oil and water, we decided to push the Alinsky angle first in the form of new projects taking advantage of the different crises going on today (remember, never let a crisis go to waste was one of the earlier statements of the Obama administration).

We also decided to introduce new projects there were designed to benefit the “social good” of our customers as well as our community programs.

If we received pushback on the Alinsky angle then we would reshape the presentation of the projects to promote capital cronyism…

And so, we talked with both of them individually and were able to do so before one talked to the other — seems God’s hands were at work as their schedules would permit us to talk to one then the other consecutively. Both would be unavailable to the other while we talked to either…

The Results

In a word: scary…

They balked at both approaches…

Instead, THEY both brought up the capitalism approach that should be taken with the 2016 projects while calling the Alinsky and crony capitalism approaches ridiculous and suicidal…

They even questioned whether I had been returning to drinking  (to which the answer is no)…

My head cocked to one side and has been there ever since…

How can anyone embracing Alinsky, Cloward-Piven, and Progressivism all over their social media be doing a double standard with capitalism?

Seriously…

We didn’t want to disclose what we knew for one reason — well, two really…

They ARE offering some very sound advice as well as wisdom during our executive meetings — they are due the utmost humility and respect from us for doing so..

We didn’t want to be calling them on the carpet without a full warrant due to the value they have been providing — again out of humility and respect…

However, we can’t ignore their stand on government policy either…

This means everything they are offering will be reviewed more extensively — we will also be watching them vigilantly for any change in behavior that would indicate a shift in policy business-wise…

Lesson

There is a reason to have

one set of ethics…

one set of morals…

one set of values…

and all of which back each other up.

Anyone with two or more of any of the character sets only invites trust to leave and doubt to enter…

And anyone who can’t be fully trusted or trusted at all will also find their closest friends listening to their enemies.

In our case, their enemies would be their competitors — we are not at that point, but we are finding ourselves examining their competition more closely as a result of our conversations with them.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
