"RULE 4: 'Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.' If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)"
Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals, (1971) is the handbook for practical advice as to how to game the system to advance your own political agenda. It holds up well 45 years later.
