The Two Little Known Columbia Professors Who Planned the Collapse of America in 1966

Their aim was to create a crisis in the welfare system by overwhelming it.

Published

The Cloward-Piven plan is a political strategy developed in the 1960s by two sociology professors, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their aim was to create a crisis in the welfare system by overwhelming it with new applicants, thereby creating chaos and forcing the government to adopt radical leftist policies. Many conservatives believe that what is happening in America today is a clear execution of this plan, with the Biden administration pushing policies that are destroying the country’s economy, increasing welfare dependency, and expanding government power.

Cloward and Piven were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. They were also married to one another. The Cloward-Piven strategy was outlined in a May 1966 article in the liberal magazine The Nation titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.”

The Cloward-Piven plan is based on the idea that the best way to achieve socialist goals is not through violent revolution but by gradually overloading the welfare state until it collapses. The idea is to create a crisis that will force the government to adopt radical leftist policies, such as universal healthcare, guaranteed income, and the nationalization of key industries.

The plan was first put into practice in New York City in the late 1960s, where Cloward and Piven organized the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO) to increase the number of people on welfare. The NWRO was successful in getting thousands of new people to apply for welfare benefits, which led to a budget crisis in New York City and forced the government to adopt more progressive policies.

Today, many conservatives believe that what is happening in America is a clear execution of the Cloward-Piven plan. They point to the Biden administration’s push for massive spending on welfare programs, such as the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill, which includes a $300 weekly unemployment benefit on top of existing state benefits. They argue that this is just the first step in a larger plan to create a crisis in the welfare system and force the government to adopt even more radical policies.

Conservatives also point to the Biden administration’s efforts to increase government power and control. For example, the administration has proposed expanding the size of the Supreme Court, which conservatives argue is an attempt to pack the court with leftist judges who will support radical policies. They also point to the administration’s push for gun control, which they argue is an attempt to disarm the population and make it easier for the government to exert control.

Another way in which the Cloward-Piven plan is being executed is through the push for open borders and mass immigration. Conservatives argue that the Biden administration’s lax immigration policies are overwhelming the country’s social services and welfare system, as more and more illegal immigrants enter the country and rely on government assistance. They argue that this is a deliberate strategy to create a crisis in the system and force the government to adopt more radical policies, such as amnesty for illegal immigrants and the abolition of ICE.

Conservatives also point to the Biden administration’s efforts to increase racial division and stoke class warfare. They argue that the administration’s focus on critical race theory and identity politics is an attempt to divide the country along racial and socioeconomic lines, creating chaos and making it easier for the government to impose radical policies. They also argue that the administration’s push for increased taxes on the wealthy is an attempt to demonize the successful and create class resentment.

Many conservatives see the Cloward-Piven plan as a direct threat to American democracy and capitalism. They argue that the plan is designed to undermine the country’s free market system and replace it with a socialist one. They also argue that the plan is a direct attack on individual liberty, as it seeks to create a society in which the government has almost unlimited power and control over people’s lives.

In conclusion, many conservatives believe that what is happening in America today is a clear execution of the Cloward-Piven plan. They argue that the Biden administration’s policies are creating a crisis in the welfare system, increasing government power and control, and undermining American democracy and capitalism. Whether or not the Cloward-Piven plan is actually being executed is a matter of debate, but there is no doubt that the policies being pushed by the Biden administration are causing significant social and economic disruption.

However, it is worth noting that not all conservatives agree with the idea that the Cloward-Piven plan is being executed. Some argue that the Biden administration’s policies are simply misguided and ineffective, rather than part of a deliberate strategy to undermine American democracy and capitalism.

Why Not Pay Reparations to Everybody?

We cannot go back and redress every incident, in every locale, for all time, nor should we

Published

on

Many ethnic and racial groups at various times throughout our history made significant contributions, which, across the broad swath of today’s population, remain virtually unknown. For all the blather about reparations, and who owes what to whom, one ought to step back and consider who among those who reside in the United States have been aggrieved, how recently, for how long, what was the impact at the time, what are the ramifications today, and what is the overall assessment?

Focusing on the Chinese

The Central Pacific Railroad in California (that hotbed of reparations proposals) in the 1800s, for example, employed as many as 12,000 Chinese as young as age 12. The pool of these workers represented America’s largest industrial workforce. Nine out of 10 people employed by the Central Pacific Railroad were first generation Chinese in America — not merely of Chinese ancestry.

Curiously, little has been recorded or even noted about this vital workforce. Some 50 years ago, one historian was surprised to learn of such scant information about these Chinese, while European and American workers of the same era had been described and characterized at length.

In 2012, the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America project assembled a massive collection of oral accounts, documents, photos, and other paraphernalia on this area of American history. This Chinese railroad workforce, it has since been determined, provided the lion’s share of the most labor-intensive tasks: cutting or even blasting through granite, and effectively laying track across the far western States.

Productive and Unknown

How were they able to be so productive? As it turns out, many of these workers had been blacksmiths, tin smiths, carpenters, woodworkers, and even architects before their arrival in the U.S. In other words, they represented a highly skilled and, in some cases, educated group. Yet, they have been largely ignored by history, and when anything is written about them, it is often in the collective sense.

Whereas we know the names of pioneers in the Black Freedom Movement, such as Frederick Douglass, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, Sojourner Truth, and numerous others, the names of Chinese leaders during this era are virtually unknown. And we tend to view this workforce as monolithic with no individual personalities, aspirations, or objectives.

Among these Chinese workers, one has to wonder. Were they underpaid? Likely so. Was the rate of mortality on the job significantly high? Undoubtedly so. How about the rate of injury and illness? How about the ability of the individual worker to rise in the ranks? Own property? Aspire to U.S. citizenship?

The Folly of Redressing All of History

Should descendants of these Chinese be given reparations? Should descendants of all others throughout our history that did not get a fair shake be given reparations? This notion, of course, is folly. We cannot go back and redress every incident, in every locale, for all time, nor should we.

The history of the U.S., as with the history of EVERY other country on Earth, is replete with unfairness and injustice. Leftists, apparently, are the only group that does not know this, and would not listen if this historical reality fell in their laps.

What’s more, if we consider Caucasian males, today’s scourge among Leftists, their sacrifices have been extraordinary. At least 360,000 Union troops died in the Civil War with far more than a million gravely injured. Caucasian abolitionists represented one quarter of all lynchings (primarily male victims) in the U.S. Finally, the death toll of Caucasian males in WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and other conflicts is staggering.
