Fun with words

Confused by that term “reconciliation” and just exactly what it means? Let’s let the community organizer Godfather himself, Saul Alinsky, break it down for us:

It is a world not of angels but of angles, where men speak of moral principles but act on power principles; a world where we are always moral and our enemies always immoral; a world where “reconciliation” means that when one side gets the power and the other side gets reconciled to it, then we have reconciliation.

(italics, ours)

40 years on, who knew how relevant those words and that definition would be?
