    So, there's this new claim floating around predominantly conservative online sources that says the recent actions in light of our debt crisis resemble something suggested in the 60s called the "Cloward-Piven Strategy." Anyone else heard of this?

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/08/cloward-piven_paradise_now.html

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/15/the-cloward-piven-strategy/

    For those who'd like it shorthand:

    "The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward (1926-2001) and Frances Fox Piven (b. 1932) that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of 'a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty'."

    I have not heard of that. This whole manufactured economic crisis seems to me a ploy to dissolve the sovereignty of the U.S and Europe. Yes, I'm wearing a tinfoil hat.

    I finally have a country located and a business idea created. While no country is perfect and an anarchist area is not available, I and my business/investment partners see the value in vacating the US for more productive and free locales. I hope to have positive news/details of my relocation within two years. Until then I will remain ambiguous.

    Not sure if Overwatch is the same person as Dakryn or the government wiped his memory and gave him a new identity.

    Interesting that no-one here gives a fuck about what's been going on in England for the past week.

    No one is surprised, which is different from not giving a fuck. I mean, we don't discuss the weather in this thread, do we?

    True. I wonder if anyone will talk about the rioting when it bleeds over into the US.

    No, because anyone with even a mild level of awareness knows it's going to happen soon. In a way, it already is happening with all this "flash mob" nonsense.

    His business idea will involve building a real-life Fortress of Solitude out of ice. All covered in several layers of tinfoil.
