Axioms for Organizers

“Don’t waste time fighting the competition; use that time to fight the issues and win and that will take care of the competition.”

“We educate people in order to organize them.  We don’t organize people in order to educate them.”

“Good organizers never give up – they get the opposition to do that.”

“Usually those who can spare a little time for the cause are actually ready to give it all if only someone would ask them.”

“A good organizer is a social arsonist who goes around setting people on fire.”

Axioms for Organizers, by Fred Ross Sr.
