One half of the 1960's duo who called for the crashing of the U.S. economy by flooding welfare and entitlement programs, said last month that she is very impressed with what Barack Obama is doing 'under the radar.' Frances Fox Piven, the female half of the Cloward-Piven strategy developed at Columbia University in the 1960's is considered a hero by the Progressive movement. That would be the same Columbia attended by Barack Obama and William Ayers.

Via Discover the Networks:
In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them," Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would "the rest of society" accept their demands.
It should be easy to see that Barack Obama embraces this strategy; he IS using it. The proponents of it in the 1960's were also fans of Saul Alinsky, a man whose work Obama places at the front of his playbook.

On September 20, 2010 Fox Piven spoke at the Brecht Forum, a place where socialists, marxists, and communists speak freely. Here is the excerpt from Piven in which she lauds the work Obama has done but people don't notice it because it has been "under the radar."
