‘The Issue is Never the Issue. The Issue is Always the Revolution.’ Manufactured Housing Business Future – Along with Millions Seeking Their Part of the American Dream – Hangs in the Balance; plus MHMarkets


““The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” Whatever our revolutionaries say they want, they really want to overturn the whole system.” So wrote Peter Wolfgang in the Stream. Wolfgang isn’t alone in making that observation. “An SDS radical once wrote, “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” In other words the cause – whether inner city blacks or women – is never the real cause, but only an occasion to advance the real cause which is the accumulation of power to make the revolution.” ― David Horowitz, Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model (2009). Horowitz and Wolfgang used that quote over a dozen years apart, but it could be used again today.  Saul Alinksy is the author of the often-referenced Rules for Radicals. The Alinksy 101 made that same reference and headline quote. Some pull quotes from Alinsky 101.

Part I


  • For Alinsky, the revolutionary’s purpose is to undermine the system and then see what happens.”
  • Alinsky created several organizations, and inspired others, including his training institute for organizers, which he called the Industrial Areas Foundation. But his real influence was as the Lenin of the post-Communist left. Alinsky was the practical therorist for progressives who had supported the Communist cause to regroup after the fall of the Berlin Wall and mount a new assault on the capitalist system.”
  • It was Alinsky who wove the inchoate relativism of the post-Communist left into a coherent whole, and helped to form the coalition of communists, anarchists, liberals, Democrats, black racialists, and social justice activists…”
  • Infiltrating the institutions of American society and government – something the “counter-cultural” radicals of the 1960s were reluctant to do – was Alinsky’s modus operandi. While Tom Hayden and Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin were confronting Lyndon Johnson’s Pentagon and creating riots at the Democratic convention, Alinsky’s organizers were insinuating themselves into Johnson’s War on Poverty program and directing federal funds into their own organizations and causes.”
  • Alinsky also pioneered the alliance of radicals with the Democratic Party, which ended two decades of confrontation climaxing in the convention riot of 1968. “
  • In 1969, the year that publishers reissued Alinsky’s first book, Reveille for Radicals, a Wellesley undergraduate named Hillary Rodham submitted her 92-page senior thesis on Alinsky’s theories (she interviewed him personally for the project).6 In her conclusion Hillary compared Alinsky to Eugene Debs, Walt Whitman and Martin Luther King.”
  • The title of Hillary’s thesis was “There Is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” In this title she had singled out the single most important Alinsky contribution to the radical cause – his embrace of political nihilism. An SDS radical once wrote, “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” In other words the cause – whether inner city blacks or women – is never the real cause, but only an occasion to advance the real cause which is the accumulation of power to make the revolution. That was the all consuming focus of Alinsky and his radicals.”
  • Guided by Alinsky principles, post-Communist radicals are not idealists but Machiavellians. Their focus is on means rather than ends, and therefore they are not bound by organizational orthodoxies in the way their admired Marxist forebears were. Within the framework of their revolutionary agenda, they are flexible and opportunistic and will say anything (and pretend to be anything) to get what they want, which is resources and power.”

Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton. An array of people, mostly on the left, have embraced the ideals of the Alinsky model, sometimes adapting Alinsky-tactics to suit their own purposes.  Here is a summary of those tactics.






But someone must keep in mind that some key figures in the billionaire class have embraced the left. Who says? Follow the money. It isn’t just what Warren Buffett has said, it is what Buffett has done with his money. Buffett has been backing Democrats and the political left for years. Democrats have been led by “Corporate Democrats” for years.





Back to The Alinsky 101 pull-quotes.


  • The demagogic standard of the revolution is “democracy” – a democracy which upends all social hierarchies, including those based on merit. This is why Alinsky built his initial power base among the underclass and the urban poor. The call to make the last ones first is a powerful religious imperative. But in politics it functions as a lever to upset every social structure and foundation. For Alinsky radicals, policies are not important in themselves; they are instrumental – means to expanding the political base.”
  • To Alinsky radicals, “democracy” means getting those who are in, out. Their goal is to mobilize the poor and “oppressed” as a battering ram to bring down the system. Hillary concludes her thesis with these words: “Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such, he has been feared – just as Eugene Debs or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths – democracy.” But democracy as understood by the American founders is not “the most radical of all political faiths” or, if it is, they regarded it as dangerous enough to put checks and balances in its way to restrain it.”

Back to Wolfgang’s essay on the Stream. He cited the lyrics from “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” Song by The Who, per LyricFind.

The song ends with the words:

QuoteMarksLeftSideYeahMeet the new bossSame as the old boss”


But that song included these words.

QuoteMarksLeftSideA change, it had to comeWe knew it all alongWe were liberated from the fold, that’s allAnd the world looks just the sameAnd history ain’t changed‘Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war
I’ll tip my hat to the new ConstitutionTake a bow for the new revolutionSmile and grin at the change all aroundPick up my guitar and playJust like yesterdayThen I’ll get on my knees and prayWe don’t get fooled again, no, no…”
Once again, the song ends with the words:


QuoteMarksLeftSideYeahMeet the new bossSame as the old boss”

The trusting and gullible can be led into all sorts of ‘revolutionary’ actions. It can be tearing down statues, mindlessly protesting on behalf of terrorists, pretending that there are more than two genders, or whatever. Some are paid. Others volunteer. But either way, “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”
And behind that revolution occurring in real time in the U.S. are billionaires who are helping to fund those protestors. Billionaires who are supporting nonprofits that in turn support those who protest against our industry, but do so in a way that often benefits the very people that they seem to be protesting against.


The whole point of having popup protest organizers ready to go is to be able to tap into the latest thing to rage against.

Sometimes it will include manufactured housing, perhaps seemingly correctly so. But in the end, it often isn’t that they propose a true solution that is better than the one being protested.  MHProNews has contacted MHAction leaders directly. They have been provided with actual solutions. They apparently have no interest in an actual solution(s), they want to keep the issue. That is what the evidence that we have seen reflects. “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”

But the revolutions of our day
in the USA
are bought and paid for
by billionaires, who’ve paved the way.

That was true during Covid19, during the George Floyd riots, and was true at other key points off and on for decades of U.S. history.






The smaller, generally more honest and honorable businesses in our industry are and have been under assault. But it isn’t just our profession. Others are too.

Remember. “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” The corporatists. The fascists. The billionaires who are supporting Marxists and others on the left.

‘There are any number of ways to undermine our culture.’ Mark Levin.

This statement is revealing. A parasite feeds on its host. Bill Gates admits he thought ill of Warren Buffett. But they got together on numerous business, nonprofit, and political levels. Clearly, whatever held Gates back he overcame. What he didn’t claim in this quote is that Buffett changed. There is an inference that Gates learned from Buffett and embraced that parasitic business model.
