The issue that is not clear to organizers, missionaries, educators, or any outsider,
is simply that if people feel they don’t have the power to change a bad situation,
then they do not think about it.
Why start figuring out how you are going to spend a million dollars
if you do not have a million dollars or are ever going to have a million dollars
– unless you want to engage in fantasy?
Once people are organized so that they have the power to make changes,
then, when confronted with questions of change,
they begin to think and to ask questions about how to make the changes.
- Saul Alinsky
