Well said.

Another difference: Alinsky was all about organizing the poor to help them get a few crumbs. The Koch Bros and their minions are all about increasing their already swollen share of the pie and conning the mouth-breathers into thinking this is a good thing.

Another: The Koch Bros are alive and kicking. This has not been true in Alinsky's case for, oh, about forty years now.
