Rohm Emmanuel "we cannot let this financial crisis go to waste" It's obvious to anyone with half a brain that Obama is using a crisis strategy to further his liberal/socialist agenda
To better understand this fascinating story below we need some background information. In the late 1960s a pair of college professors who thought they were original thinkers came up with something called the Cloward-Piven Strategy (CPS), a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. "Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited Chicago radical community organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration." Make the enemy (sic) live up to their own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book, Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judaeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one." Notice that Alinski might have heard about the Paris taxi drivers, and then gave their strategy a radical left twist.
Saul Alinsky had a huge influence on radical left people of the day. Alinsky was the subject of Hillary Clinton's senior honors thesis at Wellesley College. "In early 1993, the White House requested that Wellesley not release the thesis to anyone. Wellesley complied, instituting a new rule that closed access to the thesis of any sitting U.S. president or first lady, a rule that in practice applied only to Rodham." Alinski also strongly influenced a young Chicago "community organizer" named Barack Obama.
