Frances Fox-Piven On ‘Occupy Wall Street’; “Occupy Everything, Because It Belongs To Us”

Frances Fox-Piven On ‘Occupy Wall Street’; “Occupy Everything, Because It Belongs To Us”

On Wednesday, Frances Fox Piven was included in an AFL-CIO sponsored National Teach In where she spent a little over ten minutes speaking to students about past protests and their affect on the country, and then she spoke about the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement as one of those momentous revolutions that is gaining ground. Her comments include the usual social and economic justice rhetoric that we have come to expect from socialists and communists (including strengthening the unions, a ‘big public sector’, and free higher education for everyone), but her comment that, “The slogan of our movement should be ‘Occupy everything because it belongs to us is downright disturbing.

“Well maybe, it’s the moment when another great movement is being born.  I think it is.  I really do think it is.  It began pointing to Wall Street with the occupation in Zuccotti Square.  That was a good place to point the sword.” – Frances Fox Piven

This woman reminds me of the mullahs that used the Iranian students to overthrown the government and sent Iran into the inner circle of hell that they are now fighting and dying to be free of.

The ten minute audio of her speech can be found here.

Hopefully, the numerous Ron Paul supporters can enlighten their brethren on the message of freedom, liberty, and peace that is sorely lacking when it comes to socialists and communists who believe that one must take from another even to the point of violence.

Frances Fox Piven On Glenn Beck

Frances Fox Piven: Glenn Beck Seeks ‘Foreign, Dark-Skinned, Intellectual’ Scapegoats

by Kyle Olson

Throughout much of 2009, Glenn Beck extensively covered the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” that was first brought into the public domain in a May 1966 article in The Nation magazine.  In the article, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, two Columbia professors, developed a strategy by which the welfare system could be overwhelmed with demand, broken, and replaced with a “guaranteed annual income.”

Beck has successfully made the argument that the Cloward-Piven Strategy was a blueprint for success at overwhelming that system.  Don’t think it worked?  Ask the leaders of New York City.  The strategy worked so well, the mass rush for welfare benefits bankrupted the city in the 1970s.

So as Beck has brought new light to this strategy, no one has asked Frances Fox Piven’s opinion.  Until now.

Go over and check out the rest, meanwhile, I think I may go down a rabbit hole or two.  It’s time to take a break from the mother of all banks.  For those that haven’t visited the Socialism page at the top of the blog – you may want to peruse a bit there.
