If you have ever doubted the Cloward and Piven strategy – the intentional process of spending the government into bankruptcy for the purposes of collapsing the system so they can rebuild it in the image they desire – if you have ever doubted that this is what the Left is trying to do, I bring you this story:
Austerity? Austerity? OK, just for grins and giggles, let’s check the meaning of that word – in case the people from the HufPo have gotten lost in the Princess Diaries again:
Definition of AUSTERITY
1: the quality or state of being austere
2a : an austere act, manner, or attitude b : an ascetic practice
3: enforced or extreme economy
Now, ask yourself: in what world is spending $1 TRILLION+ more in the next 10 years than we are spending now “austerity?” It might help if you actually look at the root word here:
Definition of AUSTERE
1a : stern and cold in appearance or manner b : somber, grave
2: morally strict : ascetic
3: markedly simple or unadorned
4: giving little or no scope for pleasure
5: of a wine : having the flavor of acid or tannin predominant over fruit flavors usually indicating a capacity for aging
There’s the real issue: someone in the government is actually saying we need to stop spending money of “pleasure.” So, being responsible (i.e. moral) and not indulging ourselves is “austerity.
Now, for the average person who opposes “austerity,” this is about their personal greed and self-interest, mostly based on survival. But the people who are writing this story, for Cloward and Piven – who developed this plan – there is no need for concerns over survival: these people feed at the trough of the public tax dollars. Their needs are assured. So what motivates these people? Simple – they are looking to satisfy their personal greed for power. But how do they seize power in a system that empowers the individual through the free market? They need to collapse it, and how better to collapse it than to spend it into the ground? And how better to ensure that this spending continues than to tell the greedy individual who is worried about day-to-day survival that the government is being “mean” by trying to be responsible?
Only in the world of utopian pipe-dreams can an increase in spending of more than $1 TRILLION dollars be considered “austerity,” but I guess that’s exactly where the bat-crap crazy Left lives.
