    I note the usual suspects don't have the capacity to actually comment on the OP. It that an Alinsky tactic?

    I was not familiar with the Indian Act in Canada, so I just did a brief read through via Wiki. It seems it's still in force, although there have been some amendments since the period I assume the video was taken.

    The video does detail some obvious actions required to bring change. It also details how to manipulate people both in the cause, and outside of the cause, which certainly brings into focus the methodology of lies and deceit that Alinsky's ideas require.

    What it seems to suggest is the complaints and talking points being used today on a number of fronts are certainly not organic, not do they necessarily echo the actual will of the people on specific issues. What the video would seem to reflect is the will of a select inner circle, who use causes and susceptible people to achieve their goals.

    There are myriad reasons to explain the drinking and drunkenness in countries which serve and glorify the state rather than the individual and fail to give meaning and dignity to life.Yet the nations of the West, where alcoholism is also reaching alarming levels, can hardly afford to cast stones. At a conference held at John Hopkins University recently experts reported that more than 12 percent of teen-agers in the United States are today considered "high-risk" drinkers and that problem drinking among children as young as 8 years has become an "epidemic."

    What we know is that the depersonalization of people under commie govts contributes to alcoholism. It got so bad the commies tried prohibition.

    Just goes along with the rest of the fail that is marxism.

    Still having trouble are you? It must suck to get caught posting evidence which refutes your claims not once but twice.... by the same person.

    Hatuey its getting so easy to reject your notions. We already know you know more than the senate intelligence committee but your self-described insight appears to know no bounds, does it?

    Pretending you won an argument after your first link debunked your claim? Poor form.

    Lmao, bringing up other threads where your absence of evidence destroyed your position?

    Hatuey, I was speaking to your posts in general. You know it all, especially with google.

    Like I said-easier and easier to dismiss.

    Sophists usually sound educated, they never are. That fact becomes evident every time you debunk your claims with your own links. Like in this thread.
