Another Wise Man

Saul Alinsky-ites, ACORN, SEIU, Barack Øbama, Marxists, Progressives, Leftists, Apollo Alliance, Socialists, Communists, Congress, Liberals, Bleeding Hearts, Democrats (and Republicans), listen the hell up:

"It is often said that power corrupts. But, it is equally important to realize that weakness corrupts too!  Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are faults of the weak.  Resentment on the part of the weak springs not from injustice done to them, but from their own sense of inadequacy and  impotence." 

--Eric Hoffer, 1980

Ring a bell? Strike a cord? Sound familiar?

Enemy of the Imperial State (EOTIS)


  1. Oh, my goodness! What you said. I'm still reading on Hoffer's "True Believers." Very, very interesting look into the "mind" of mobs and other fanatic groups. Love your new look, too. :o)

  2. Thanks. My local group is reading Alinsky. Makes my eyes bleed.

  3. I know the feeling. Try some of Sun Tzu's "Art Of War" to make it stop.

  4. Good advice. I have the "illustrated" edition....!
