反叛手冊 : RULES FOR RADICALS by Saul Alinsky , p.18-20
1. The setting for the drama of change has never varied. Mankind has been and is divided inti three parts : the Haves, the Have-Nots, and the Have-a-little, Want Mores.
. . .
2. Just as the clash of interests within the Have-a-Little, Want Mores has bred so many of the great leaders it has also spawned a particular breed stalemated ( 僵持狀態 ) by cross interests into INACTION.
3. These Do-Nothings profess a commitment to social change for ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity, and then abstain from ( 戒; 避免 ) and discourage all effective action for change.
4. They are known by their brand, " I AGREE WITH YOUR ENDS BUT NOT YOUR MEANS."
They function as blankets whenever possible smothering ( 扼殺 ) sparks of dissension that promise to flare up into the fire of action.
5. These Do-Nothings appear publicly as good men, humanitarian, concerned with justice and dignity.
6. In practice they are invidious. They are the ones Edmund Burke referred to when he said, acidly:
" THE ONLY THING NECESSARY FOR THE TRIUMPH OF EVIL IS FOR GOOD MEN TO DO NOTHING. "
