If you have, as I do, liberal friends either in person or through social media, no doubt you, as have I, been on the receiving end of dismissive and at times, curse-laden retorts when you truthfully refer to their party as socialists.
Glenn Beck, for years, has been on the receiving end of such vitriol every time he brings up Cloward and Piven or Saul Alinsky.
I’m about to link it all together for you in one neat and tidy little package.
The “Occupy Wall Street” protests.
Now, lest you think this is the end game of a bunch of people who have no real idea of what they’re doing there, as has been portrayed, think again. They know EXACTLY why they are there and, after reading this article, so too will you.
“Occupy Wall Street” is a test, a trial balloon, a dress rehearsal. Nothing more.
David Horiwitz boiled down Cloward’s and Piven’s crisis creation to this; “The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.”
According to Cloward’s and Piven’s hero, Saul Alinsky, “Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.”
Back to Cloward and Piven.
“By crisis, we mean a publicly visible disruption in some institutional sphere. Crisis can occur spontaneously (e.g., riots) or as the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized disruption to public attention.”
