For those who, unlike myself, did not attend a liberal college, this may be new to you. Here's a link explaining the technique.
Here's a link explaining the strategy with their OWN WORDS. Social service activists have taken over the field of social work, USING the poor/desperate deliberately to move their revolutionary goals. The social worker who is in the job because she/he want to help people is pushed to cooperate with anti-American movements, that want to bring down the system, no matter who it hurts.
Here is a deeper analysis of the way that crises are deliberately manufactured to promote the destruction of American society.
The efforts to overload the American System to the point of breakdown continues.
One of the little-known (by the general public) institutions that have a LARGE impact on American policy is the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) - Wikipedia reference:
The Institute for Policy Studies is the largest and most influential of the far left think tanks in Washington. Since its founding in 1963 it has steadily followed a pro-Marxist line on foreign policy, defense and the economy and has spawned a large number of spin-offs, other think tanks and public affairs organizations following the same radical agenda.
To put its policy recommendations into action, IPS built networks of contacts among Congressional legislators and their staffs, academics, government officials, and the national media.
Some affiliated people are:
- Frances Fox Piven - the mother of the Cloward-Piven Strategy
- Barbara Ehrenreich - wrote Nickled and Dimed - an "experience" working in the minimum-wage job industries that "proved" it was not possible to survive, let alone get ahead. For a different experience, read Scratch Beginnings. Adam Shepard, the author, started off in a strange city with just the clothes on his back and $25, and at the end of a year, had money, a home, and transportation.
- Leon Panetta - THIS came as a surprise - I think of myself as reasonably well-informed, but had no clue.
- Noam Chomsky - Super-Leftist.
- Tom Hayden - Ditto, also founder of SDS.
We have to think of the current situation as the result of a Long March of Progressives. They laid the groundwork, and are now beginning to make their influence felt.
Fortunately, they are mis-managing the economy, military, education, and other American institutions so thoroughly that they may well doom themselves to a footnote in history, if the American public catches on and votes them out.
