"There is Only One Fight" by Hillary Rodam 1969

Gertee, April 21, 2008


Darren Weeks sent me a pdf of Hillary's senior thesis at Wellesley College in 1969. Here's a url that has it posted: http://www.gopublius.com/HCT/HillaryClintonThesis.html

It's "An Analysis of the Alinsky Model." Clinton apparently was prompted to write about it by Mr Alinsky himself, and her acknowledgements say he also offered her a job. Alinsky "created a particular approach to community organizing," a kind that "many considered [it] a dangerous socio/political philosophy."

Darren wrote:

"As I said, he was such an idol to Hillary Clinton, that she wrote her senior thesis on him. Yet, in his second book, published in 1971 by the title of Rules for Radicals, he openly expresses his admiration for Lucifer.
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), 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."
Clearly, Saul Alinsky was a man who took pride in being a radical for the "common good". And he is one who apparently helped to shape the mindset of the woman who we now know as presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton." {end quote}

Darren's in contact with Nancy Levant still so maybe we'll get an update on her current situation very soon. I miss her articles and her spirited defiance, and I'm sure there are many others looking forward to whatever it is she's preparing to write next. We continue to wish her all the best.

The html version is paginated images of rather poor quality. The OCR'd pdf version is downloadable for offline study and the quality is excellent.
