The New Cloward & Piven Three-Prong Attack On Welfare, Immigration & Elections

• by The Common Consti

Many of us who follow politics are either familiar with or have at least heard of Cloward and Piven – Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven. They were `60s era radicals dressed up as Columbia University professors. Of course, we can probably describe most college professors in the same manner.

The famous, or infamous article describing their plan was originally crafted in the 60's, and re-released in 2015 on The website as part of "The Nation's 150th Anniversary Special Issue."

The essence of their scheme was/is, "A mass strategy to recruit the poor onto welfare rolls would create a political crisis that could result in legislation that brings an end to poverty."
