I was not comparing them apples to apples. It was a poorly drawn analogy, admittedly, but an analogy nonetheless. I was trying to illustrate the concept that even if someone hasn't heard of someone, it doesn't mean that person was insignificant. It seems that you base the importance of Alinsky to his "notariety" rather than what his philosophy was and who subscribes to that philosophy.
This is why I hate arguing on this board. People seize on non-substantive shit to win an argument, rather than to just think about the intended meaning.
