Cloward and Piven ( a husband and wife team of extreme left wing sociologists ) had a vision but it was a woefully disconnected construct that had as much to do with personal bitterness as it did with social benevolence and perhaps as history and evidence would have it much less of the latter than the former.
In point of fact when we examine the finer points of what I consider to be a dastardly plan for the destruction of this nation we can understand why a sitting President who also appears to be a disciple of Alinsky as well as an admirer of the Cloward and Piven school for fundamental transformation by way of social chaos frequently commits acts against the traditional logic and shared common sense values of the patriotic populous when it comes to the governance of this nation. You see all the things that this destroyer of our common cause as a people does to us while he occupies that position of supreme authority make perfect sense if you look at them through the applicable social filter. Obama is the modern day prophet, organizer and promulgator to the Cloward-Piven strategy. Make no mistake about this; it is a very serious accusation and one that should be punishable by the strictest and most severe penal codes of high treason.
Both staunch enemies of the capitalist system determined to break and then reset the traditional living standard of the North American community Cloward and Piven ( Coward and Sniven if you like ) envisioned a plan, a scheme..... now visibly well underway, to overload the social safety nets of this nation with moral outcry for those in need ( manufactured emergency ) and thereby bankrupt the entire economy by exploding the response capacity; In effect using its own benevolent value system against it as a tool of destruction. This would in their minds force a reset of all living standards and financial remunerations by way of default. In other words everyone who simply set foot in this country and succeeded in drawing a breath would be entitled to government support. This weak minded scheme that has been the hue and cry of the left since its inception in the sixties is not only devoid of operational logistics as they relate to any kind of proven success but also appears to be the product of a sub culture agenda in much the same way Keynes ( A contemporary and hero to Cloward ) fostered many of his financial and economic theorem; That would be from the viewpoint of an alternate lifestyle with the bitter aim of destroying the very society that in his pathetic and self-pitying estimation had cast him out. You will remember that Keynes was a rabid pedophile who practiced his perversions all over the world but especially on the African continent by paying for “bed and boy “as he would put it later on in some of the reprinted letters to his colleagues in crime. Ever the pragmatist Keynes who married traditionally in later life was always on the lookout for a bargain “ boy ". Apparently the economist in him was never completely driven out by the social monster that coexisted therein.
Additionally what stands forward with Cloward/Piven as the most lethal flaw in the plan and one that truly is a marvel for its obviousness while at the same time being completely overlooked.... is the assumption that eviscerating the economic structure to the point of default would allow the nation and the country to continue on as a single unit of governance. This is a childishly gullible and spectacularly presumptuous position with absolutely no reason whatsoever to favor it as a likely outcome. It completely ignores the origins of our union as having been earned and in fact painstakingly cobbled together with an enormous price in human lives into the magnificent structure that it is today with...and i repeat only with the help of a massive military effort. Minus that effort there would be no union to attack let alone change. It requires a stunningly vacuous lack of wherewithal that only a left wing ideologue can foster in all of his/her intellectual dysfunction to ignore this one most salient truth. Yet they manage to get away with it as a self-righteous hiding place from which to reach back and attack stable and therefore hated society....or at least so they think.
The undeniable truth is that we live in a global society today that is witnessing the rise of many powerful military nations who would gladly take advantage of a weakened United States posture to become aggressive politically and almost certainly even geographically. We saw this in the Soviet Union....a failed real time version of the Cloward/Piven experiment....and we will see much worse here on this continent should the economy finally succumb to such ultimate dysfunction.
In fact one wonders today just how far into the hands of other sovereign nations this country has been placed without the consent of the governed and why any nation of sane citizens would willingly submit to the bitter goals of social outcasts like Keynes or Cloward and Piven what's wrong with this picture?
Why would these udeservedly revered Patrons of Academia ignore almost all of their learning and spend the better part of their lives to make this attempt, this plan to bring down a tried and true system of progress hoping to replace it with one that sees no social boundaries, recognizes no individual achievement and rewards no personal effort?
The only reason I can make sense of is to glorify failure and thus make those who choose to fail less visible and more comfortable at the expense of everyone else.
In that respect may I say with no regret or even a moment’s hesitation that I hold in reserve a little over 900 cc’s of concentrated and fluidized personal body salts dedicated to eventuality of visiting the site of their burial ( Keynes, Cloward, Piven ) and will rise to the occasion on that day and hour to bless by virtue of holy sprinkling the earth underneath which they are thankfully buried.
