It’s all about control. Dam the federal government.
Seriously, it can pretty much be boiled down to the underlying philosophy that, when combined, comes from the final chapter (only 3/4 of one page) in Marx and Engels’ accomplishment (destroying the social and political order of things by any means necessary), and Cloward and Piven’s strategy as detailed in their 1966 article in “Nation” magazine. Create the crisis born out of confusion and helplessness, then swoop in to take control.
I could end up completely wrong (it would be at least the 2nd time – hah hah), but I’m wondering what’s around the corner, since we seem to be getting really, really ripe as a nation for what comes next. I think I see Hillary being set up to be swept off stage, I don’t believe Smilin’ Joe Biden has any chance, yet he’s suddenly in the news, and I have learned to notice what ISN’T being talked about – at all. In this case, we haven’t heard the name “Elizabeth Warren” for quite some time now. No one is asking her how serious she is about her claim of not running. NO one in the national MSM is reporting on what she’s opposing or supporting. Oh, she’s issuing statements from Iran to whatever, but they’re not getting out of the Boston Globe to anything except relatively obscure internet sites. (Google News is a marvelous tool to watch what is and is NOT happening.) I find myself wondering if Bernie Sanders is the trial balloon for “official” socialism (not the semi-covert variety we currently have), with him surging and bringing in large numbers to rallies (or so the MSM is reporting, at least). If the Democratic Party “happens” to fall into chaos like the Republican Party, who better to come riding in from off stage than Elizabeth Warren? Just a thought…. Communism and socialism are dead – as we’ve been mockingly assured by the left. Long live communism and socialism.
