Rules for Radicals is the mighty whitey fantasy where a middle- to upper- class white guy, called "organizer", becomes the lord and master of the "have-nots", and directs them into political action by radicalizing them under the pretense of liberating them.

It's a very short book, and very dense, full of examples of successful and unsucessful rebellion.

The organizer needs curiosity, irreverence, imagination, a sense of humor, a bit of a blurred vision of a better world, an organized personality, he needs to be a
well-integrated political schizoid (because he must not be a true believer in his cause, he is only pretending to liberate people), and an ego, among other skills.

Alinksy writes like a short-sighted, power-tripping megalomaniac, particularly in the last chapter on the proxy tactic, which is a delusional escalation that resulted in the inevitable spectacular failure:

Can first person work in a story? I'm writing a short 50 page novella on the residential schools in Canada. I'm a 3rd generation First Nation, who doesn't know much about it all except from learning it in university.

I know real friends who's grandparents had went through it -- I've heard stories. So the first person isn't really me, but rather it's the people I know who have experienced the repercussions of it all.

I can give an excerpt, but it's still in its first draft.

Anyway, does first person work if it's done well?

It can work. Your subject matter is a hell of a story so please write it, however you must.
>>
>>8842454
Yes. I find great works are usually third-person, though.
>>
>>8842461
I say this because I want to personalize the story to the reader -- so much so that every time something tragic or traumatizing happens to the first person, it's as if it happens to the reader.

I want people to know how terrible it all was. I mean, I'm not doing first person willy nilly because I suck at writing (I probably do though), but rather I just want the readers to really experience what happened in those schools, and what happened to their children and their children's children because...

I have a one month winter break. I would like to start reading quality literature and I will go to /mu/ and start listening to quality music. I will also be speedwriting my first novel (YA).

I just want to be an emphatic and learned person. What else can I do? I don't like boring books... I'm someone who likes YA so Catcher in the Rye isn't hard and romance isn't, but I don't like dull books. HELP.

I'm new to /lit so I I just want some opinions on this shitty and sappy poem I got the inspiration to write. I'm not too concerned about someone stealing it.

I really used to dread the future.
But now that we're together, it doesn't seem so bad.

I thought I'd be dead in the next five years. But now it seems like a distant end.

I never thought I could go anywhere I pleased.
But you take me to far away places without leaving the house.

I assumed life was just achieving one thing and moving on to the next.

Never been on /lit/ before, but have a pretty straightforward and quick question I can't seem to find much on. I'm getting an e-reader for Christmas and haven't been into reading in quite some time. Is there a similar way to acquire books and the e-reader versions besides buying the book twice?

I was thinking similar to how buying a vinyl copy of an album usually comes with a digital code to also download that version of the album. It would be nice to have a physical collection of books to read while I'm at home while having a kindle to take the books...
