Judging by the RAEG generated as we unraveled sock puppets and humiliated their operators, the system is a roaring success … however:
Alinksy’s Sixth Rule states:
A good tactic is one your people enjoy.
But this is closely followed by Alinsky’s Seventh Rule:
A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
Last night, after much heated discussion among the dramacrats of the famecabal, Alinsky’s Seventh was successfully involved … however more conservative members invoked both Alinsky’s First & Ninth Rules:
Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.
The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
Faith without works is dead; we had to turn these applications of principles into concrete action.
Therefore, the power of the fameball is still available to those who need it, but it now comes in the form of dossiers stored on Evernote, another system that we’ve been programming for a few months. If you are a grassroots organizer and you’re plagued by disruptive sock puppets, just hunt up one of the puffs and they’ll take care of you.
