Someone help me out here. I can't figure out why the contents box isn't showing up under the intro. I've tried coding it 3 different ways and I can't figure out what's wrong. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 21:53, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Tomorrow morning. Don't have night-editing rights, and I'm sure the site's going to be locked down soon. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 21:54, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

The contents will "pop up" if more chapters are added. Nothing to worry about here. Karajou 21:56, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Well gee, I was ready for bed and everything! Thanks for clearing up the oversight, Karajou. I wasn't sure of the minimum number of headers for the contents box.

Power goes to two poles

The quote "Power goes to two poles: to those who've got money and those who've got people" is technically a fake quote.(I've never seen anybody source the words in that specific makeup) What Alinsky actually wrote(Rules for Radicals, page 127) is this:

Power has always derived from two main sources, money and people. Lacking money, the Have-Nots must build power from their own flesh and blood. A mass movement expresses itself with mass tactics. Against the finesse and sophistication of the status quo, the Have-Nots have always had to club their way. In early Renaissance Italy the playing cards showed swords for nobility, chalices for the clergy, diamonds for the merchants, and clubs as the symbol of the peasants.

He did view power in two poles: money and people. Progressingamerica (talk) 13:18, 1 May 2016 (EDT)
