Cloward-Priven: Until You Understand This You Don’t Know Shit

ELDER PATRIOT – In 1964 President Lyndon Johnson signed his “War on Poverty” along with Food Stamp legislation and the Federal Housing Act into law.

In 1965 President Johnson signed legislation authorizing the Medicare Amendment to the Social Security Act establishing Medicare and Medicaid, Federal Aid to Education, the expansion of the Housing Act, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, creating open borders, the expansion of Federal Anti-Poverty Program, and Retirement for Public Servants.

In 1966 two Columbia University professors exposed the World Marxist’s strategy to use these high-sounding programs to destroy capitalism.


Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis.

The strategy was first proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven as a plan to bankrupt the welfare system and produce radical change. Sometimes known as the “crisis strategy” or the the “flood-the-rolls, bankrupt-the-cities strategy,” the Cloward-Piven approach called for swamping the welfare rolls with new applicants – more than the system could bear. It was hoped that the resulting economic collapse would lead to political turmoil and ultimately socialism.

You are left to decide if LBJ and Congress knowingly created these programs with these nefarious plans in mind or they were moved by idealism.  However, it is hard to argue with the staggering national debt these programs have accumulated over the ensuing half-century that today’s president and today’s Republican-controlled congress aren’t knowingly complicit in bringing the Cloward-Priven strategy closer to fruition.  Their combined legislative acts and irresponsible spending in defiance of the will of the people certainly makes one suspicious of their intentions.

The only difference between the original strategy and today is who will be the ultimate beneficiaries of the eventual societal collapse.  Where Cloward-Priven claimed to desire a national salary for every worker the end result we are staring at today is corporate and government dominance over the workers.


This is the best reason yet why any establishment candidate should be rejected without a second thought.
