Cloward and piven plan, a Cloward-Piven political strategy is delineated by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Then, both social scientists and policy makers at the Columbia University School of Social Work, in a 1966 article in The Nation entitled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty“. Cloward and piven both quarreled that many Americans who were qualified for welfare were not getting benefits, and that a welfare enrollment drive would make a political crisis. The topic on Cloward and Piven plan system was covered by Glenn Beck, an American conservative radio and television host on his FOX News show.
The strategy of Cloward-Piven plan seeks to hurry the fall of capitalism by overloading the government officialdom with a flood of impossible demands. Thus, it pushes the society into crisis and economic collapse. The strategy was proposed as a plan to bankrupt the welfare system and create radical change. The Cloward-Piven approach called for miring the welfare rolls with new applicants, more than the system could bear and so resulting economic collapse would bring about political turmoil.
The Cloward-Piven strategy was put to work in streets by the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), founded by African-American militant George Alvin Wiley. Its activities led directly to the well-being crisis that ruined New York City in 1975. A professor of social work, Richard A. Cloward died in 2001. His co-author, Frances Fox Piven was a research associate at Columbia’s School of Social Work. Now, she holds a Distinguished Professorship of Political Science and Sociology at the City University of New York.
A national Democratic administration would be forced to advance a federal solution to poverty to prevent a further weakening of that historic coalition that would override local welfare failures, local class and racial conflicts and local revenue dilemmas. They wrote, “The ultimate objective of this strategy is to annihilate poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income, will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income.”
Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven as Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one. They outlined a plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. They have no responsibility to pay for it. Obama doesn’t care that providing free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the reliance of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government.
