Obama, ACORN And The Cloward-Piven Strategy

Before American Thinker's James Simpson began digging at the relationship between Obama and ACORN, he discovered the Cloward-Piven Strategy. In July 2007, Simpson wrote in "What We Face":

In 1966, two Columbia University sociologists, Richard Cloward and Frances Piven, wrote an article for The Nation explaining how to destroy capitalism by overwhelming government with excessive demands for services, pushing government and society into economic collapse in order to usher in a new socialist paradise. They proposed using low-income blacks as foot soldiers to make ever-increasing, strident demands.
The Coward-Piven Strategy was implemented to its greatest effect in New York City between 1965 and 1974, after which the decade of orchestrated and crushing welfare demands finally bankrupted the city. Most recently California's economy has been ruined by over thirty years of radical-orchestrated welfare entitlement, environmentalism and immigration campaigns.

In a subsequent American Thinker piece Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis, Simpson tied the Cloward-Piven Strategy to Democrat candidate Barack Obama:

The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

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.

Barack Obama [is] at the epicenter of an incestuous stew of American radical leftism. Not only are his connections significant, they practically define who he is. Taken together, they constitute a who's who of the American radical left, and guiding all is the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Conspicuous in their absence are any connections at all with any other group, moderate, or even mildly leftist. They are all radicals, firmly bedded in the anti-American, communist, socialist, radical leftist mesh.
Read it all.

Then read The Cloward/Piven Strategy of Economic Recovery, in which Nancy Coppock describes the Obama administration's deployment of the Cloward-Piven Strategy on every facet of the American republic.

Cloward-Piven will not work because it is still a type of social system and will require a heirarchy of leaders, likely elected, who cannot and will not sustain such a society. Who will handle distribution of goods and services? Chaos is inevitable.
