"[Deciding to Organize] shows [Saul] Alinsky interpreting his approach to a potential sponsor group in Dayton, and members of this group struggling to decide whether it wants the IAF [Industrial Areas Foundation]. [...] We observe Alinksy in an initial stage of organizing—he is attempting to undermine rationalizations for inactivity and testing the group for its willingness to accept the ethical and tactical consequences of his approach to organizing—his anecdote about ruining the Ku Klux Klan leader in Texas, which he would do again, is just such a test."
