Frances Fox Piven Warns That 'Occupy' Far From Over

Posted by Brian
Frances Fox Piven, who with the late Richard Cloward, penned the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" for collapsing the capitalist system, is saying that the Occupy Movement is just beginning.

Frances Piven, who attempts to present herself as some harmless little grandmother type is anything but. She is a hard-left Marxist and member of the "Democrat Socialists of America", who's goal is the destruction of the United States as a capitalist democracy, and to transform it into a Marxist dictatorship.

She advocates "guaranteed annual incomes", and was a major force behind "Motor Voter" laws, which have increased the amount of illegal aliens being allowed to register to vote, as well as increased the likelihood of voter fraud. She has also stated "We desperately need a popular uprising."

Piven's claim is not to be taken lightly.

We think of these eruptions as something like explosions, Fourth of July fireworks perhaps that shoot into the sky, dazzle us for a moment, and then quickly fade away. The metaphor leads us to think of protest movements as bursts of energy and anger that rise in a great arc and then, exhausted, disappear.
