RE-POST – The Promotion of Mediocrity

Following today’s meeting at Blair House, I felt it was time to present this once again.

From 23 December 2009:


If you have been awake, and judging by the actions of Congress, they hope you aren’t…..well, if you have been awake, you may have heard the following names mentioned by centrist or right leaning talk show hosts, politicians or pundits.

Saul Alinsky

Richard Cloward

Frances Fox Piven

If you haven’t heard those names, you really need to educate yourself. These are the people that wrote the playbook and game plan that the “Progressives” are currently playing from. Alinsky and Cloward are both dead, but it seems that, like Obi Won Kenobi, that only made them more powerful. Piven is still alive.

First up, Saul Alinsky. Barack Obama, remember him, current President of the United States, learned and later taught Saul Alinsky’s methods of Community Organizing. To some of you, you probably think this is great. But do you know what Alinsky was looking for? More on that in a second.

Next we have Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. You have to keep those two together because they developed the “Cloward-Piven strategy” while at Columbia University’s School of Social Work. The Cloward-Piven strategy, published in “The Nation” back in 1966, put forth the theory that people who were eligible for government benefits were not receiving them. They pushed for a drive to get those people to apply for and accept these benefits.

The goal of Cloward-Piven strategy was to have the run on the government for benefits to force the Federal Government, via the Democratic Party who held both houses of Congress and the White House, to enact legislation creating a guaranteed national income.

Alinsky liked this idea too.

Now if you think this is a good idea, I am worried about your ability to see the effect of such actions.

Simply put, this promotes mediocrity. This removes the incentive to be individually successful. This is a giant step toward Communism.

Again, as I used to say on the radio show, do NOT take my word for it, do your own research. My job here is to make you think. I want you to question your preconceived ideas about how things work and be sure that you are comprehending what is actually happening in the world around you.

Think about this. If you don’t have to get out of bed in the morning and go to work in order to have your mortgage/rent and all your utilities paid, then why would you do so? Because you are not a bum?

Well, this is not how most people are.

I am all for effective and efficient welfare programs to help people who need help. But those programs need to have an end date.

Why is it that we have a President and Congress who want to have an end date for a military action, and in doing so showing the enemies of our nation when they can act up again, but it is NOT acceptable to have an end to welfare benefits to motivate people to pull themselves up from poverty.

Explain this to me in a way that I can understand and then I my finally understand bleeding heart liberalism. But since you can’t, I can only look at this for what it is.

This is EVIL Progressivism (redundant, I know). This is taking the responsibility of the individual and throwing it away.

It is a means of penalizing those who strive for and achieve success. I strive for, but have yet to achieve.

Soon, I may not have to. Because the far left, the evil Progressives, will have succeeded in making their goal. That goal……

The Promotion of Mediocrity

Do you want this?

If not, go back and re-read this.


It truly is time.
