Following the Irene page is another page, the controversial one, in which Alinsky offers three quotes, the first from a Rabbi Hillel, the second from Thomas Paine, and the third from Alinsky himself, giving his nod to Lucifer.
One well-known fact-checker source (Snopes) describes this as “three epigraphs on an introductory page.” I suppose that’s an acceptable way to characterize it.
That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

One morning I heard a local radio talk-show host make an amazing claim: that Alinsky’s 1971 classic And yet, it couldn’t be hard to check.
I had better do so as author of a biography of Hillary Clinton in which I had a section on Hillary and Saul Alinsky.As part of the promotion for the book, I would likely appear on this same talk-show, and the host surely would ask me about the Lucifer acknowledgment. Alinsky offered this: Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history …I quickly emailed one of the staffers at our library at Grove City College. the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer. Saul Alinsky commenced his magnum opus—the one for which he is hailed by the left—with an acknowledgement of the Devil.Think about that."Alinsky wrote the 1971 book which urges activists to influence public policy by disrupting government meetings and grabbing the media's attention.The opening blurb of the book does in fact reference Satan.In his speech at the Republican convention last week, Ben Carson made a statement that raised some eyebrows.“Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky,” said Carson. This was someone she greatly admired….”So far so good.Like Ben Carson, the reaction I’ve had when pointing this out to liberals has been one of disbelief.And If I’m able to get them to look and concede what Alinsky wrote, they retreat to handy excuses.And the third of the three is an “epigraph” (if you will) to Satan.But we shouldn’t let Alinsky off the Lucifer hook so easily.
