To understand where Americans are being dragged with little more than a whimper, we need only examine crises that flood Western civilization.
Europe has proven that these two can’t coexist: the welfare state and unlimited immigration. Immigrants with high birth rates soon overwhelm government’s ability to provide income, subsidies, privileges, perquisites, and medical care.
FDR said this: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” Currently in America we fail to stop illegal immigration, while Congress and the president continue to expand the American welfare state. Why follow European folly? The answer: It’s not folly, it’s designed that way there and also to happen the same way in the U.S.
Two radical socialist professors—husband and wife—at Columbia contrived a unique strategy in 1966, and the dominant figures in both parties have pushed it on us for decades. David Horowitz, raised by communist parents but now a recovered communist, summarizes it this way:
“The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.”
Government leaders working together against the public good simultaneously expand the welfare state and enable illegal immigration. It floods federal and state governments with new demands designed to show capitalism inadequate and replaceable. Consequently, designed crisis follows planned crisis. Capitalism undergoes continuous modification and threat as fascist techniques sneak socialism under the door.
The political class has sunk America deeply into Marxist Socialism, which is the theoretical model Marxists think will ultimately govern the globe. It’s being called Democratic Socialism elsewhere in order to hide its origins.
In the U.S. it’s called Progressivism. It’s the molten potpourri of ideologies of Marxists, fascists, socialists, leftists, communists, elitists, and anti-constitution liberals. They combine their powers and efforts and now work temporarily with Islamists. Progressives work together to destroy capitalism, individualism, freedom, representative democracy, constitutional government, and the American republic. They have already converted the U.S. from our constitutional rule of law to the rule of political man and the law of rule by bureaucrats. It builds government power and protects politicians from the heat of public ire.
To expedite the government takeover and country tear-down process, they redistribute American wealth around the globe as if everyone else is equally or even more deserving than are we Americans of all the wealth built and prosperity generated by forebears, parents, and ourselves.
The haters of America now have all the power and are doing as they wish. All interruptions are overcome with two steps forward and one step back ad infinitum.
