“In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them,” Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would “the rest of society” accept their demands.
Financial crisis? What’s that?
The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state. Cloward-Piven’s early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. “Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1971 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.”
There’s no socialism, there’s semi-Communism.
Cthulhu swims Left, look it up.
Go on their forums sometimes.
You don’t even need communist or Marxist in the title.
Look up five brands of socialism that aren’t a demographic and go on their websites. Read the forum posts about bringing down the system. Search Cloward-Piven.
Useful idiots. Leeches killing the host.
Their worst nightmare is empowerment. They are natural slaves. But they need that deadweight of the masses to continue to justify their position socially.
They created the welfare/benefits cliff.
If there were a path out of poverty, they’d hate it.
Fix the cliff, kill the socialist.
And why should someone else pay for your stupid decisions?
Welfare started out as war pensions and war widows. It took over from the Church. There’s no cause for it.
Even NatSocs, if you can’t afford to marry/breed, why should the smart guy down the street foot the bill?
Isn’t the perk of doing things as an adult that you enjoy all the reward, as you take on the risk? Well, if he is paying for your wife’s groceries, he has more of a right to fuck your wife than you do!
No bailouts for adults. No.
You’re already in debt per person for the national debt. Nobody can afford it. Oh, like you’re so special your genes deserve to survive and the people working 100 hour weeks don’t? Who gives a fuck what your IQ apparently is (online doesn’t count) if you can’t do a paper round?
Weak men wanting to give up their provider role are still children, they deserve no respect, let alone heading a house. That is a job. Men get the big respect because they do the big share of the labour. Don’t expect a 50s housewife if you wanna sit around playing Overwatch like a loser (the game is shit, it has good PR) because fulfilling a gender role is a two-way street!
How can you say foreign aid is bullshit but sucking the teat of your countrymen is so moral? Did they choose to be born around idiots?
And whatever happened to sending young disgraced unmarried parents away to the middle of nowhere? Where’s the human right to live in a major city, where the fun stuff is?
Now they live the life of Riley and have the privilege of passing on their DNA. Those trying to save to do the same cannot, because they’re paying for 14yos Ruby and Randy to do something a little more ego-soothing than masturbation.
