On power..............................

     It is impossible to conceive of a world devoid of power;  the only choice of concepts is between organized  and unorganized power.  Mankind has progressed only though learning how to develop and organize instruments of power in order to achieve order, security, morality, and civilized life itself, instead of a sheer struggle for physical survival.  Every organization known to man, from government down, has had only one reason for being - that is, organization for power in order to put into practice or promote its common purpose.

-Saul Alinsky, as excerpted from Rules For Radicals
