    Thomas Sowell Destroyes Francis Fox Piven in Debate (Cloward-Piven)

    It's and oldie but goodie from Milton Freidmans "Free to Choose" Series. Here, Thomas Sowell destroys Francis Fox Piven (co creator of the Cloward-Piven strategy to overload the system with welfare entitlements until the system collapses forcing the government to intervein and implement socialism in the United States) http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/theclowardpivenstrategypoe.html / Cloward?Piven strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in an equality debate. The debate starts 3:00 in the first video.

    Sowell makes more sense in a few minutes than most people do over the course of a lifetime.

    The guy has written a crap load of books, rarely gets published or selected for interviews by the liberal media, and at the same time there is not a single liberal who could stand up to him in debate. The guy is a self made genius who didnt depend on affirmative action to get in to Harvard.

    Thomas Sowell in definitely a genius I think he's written 45 books, but he's a uncle Tom :cuckoo: Sowell use to be a Marxist, but he wised up unlike some of the people on this board who are stuck in thier own stupidity.

    Sowell is one of the best intellectuals today - quite an admirable man.

    Why do the left dislike anyone mentioning Cloward-Piven?

    Easy answer: They don't like their agenda and tactics being outed.

    Because "the right" uses the so-called "Cloward-Piven strategy" as the basis for their persecution-complex conspiracy theories.

    And this "lefty" is sick of it.

    No one on the left gives 2 shits about the "Cloward-Piven" strategy. It doesn't exist as anything more than a college essay. The only people who keep in relevant are Beckites.
