The Cloward-Piven Strategy and the socialist-communist devouring of the United States

The Cloward-Piven Strategy was developed by Richard Cloward and Frances Piven in the 1960's. It outlines a strategy for radical social change by way of abusing the system to the point of destruction.

"You know, we were associated with the social work tradition, which said that the programs worked as they were supposed to work, but they didn't work as they were supposed to work. It was out of that realization, that insight, that we developed the strategy to end poverty, which called for a massive mobilization of social workers, lawyers, and organzers to get people the benefits to which they were entitled. We were proposing a kind of movement that demanded what people were already entitled to by law, by regulation, and by propaganda," stated Frances Piven.

The primary goal of the Cloward-Piven Strategy is to create a political and economic crisis that would destroy capitalism, and lead to the implementation of a socialist system with guaranteed income. The strategy involves enrolling large numbers of people into the welfare system, as many people as it takes to overwhelm and strain the system until it collapses. Everyone enrolled in the welfare system is used as an army to carry out the destruction of the current system. They are registered to vote and instructed on how to vote. They are organized and mobilized, and made to appear as grassroots organizations, demanding more from the system. The ideal outcome of the Cloward-Piven Strategy is to collapse the current system. According to their theory, this will compel the government to implement a universal basic income, which would then shift the US toward a more socialist system with increased government control over the economy. Everyone is being encouraged to do it, to burn it down, is the new sexy ring. In High School, they compare it to the new "American Revolution:"

"The Cloward-Piven Strategy is a political gambit designed to overwhelm the American government by placing so many demands on the bureaucratic structure that it collapses. It's sort of a "shock and awe campaign," a surprise attack, on entrenched systems meant to force major changes to the ways things are handled by the government. It may be messy, but it does harken back to a fundamental ideology of the American Republic: if it aint fixed, break it."

All of this explains the likes of AOC.

"What people like AOC are doing, what the Squad is doing, is very important," asserts Frances Piven. "But, at the same time, there is this movement that is so big, some people say its the biggest movement in history, its hard to know, because its hard to measure a movement. But, it is big. And, it is interracial. And, it penetrates into every small town. I now am in upstate New York. The town that I am closest to has nearly two thousand people; we have little demonstrations in front of the post office for Black Lives Matter. And, this is Trump country; nevertheless, there is a Black Lives Matter demonstration. So, it is a very potent and important moment in American political development. And, we have to make the most of it, because if we don't, we don't know what is going to happen; it is not going to be good!"
