The Cloward-Piven Strategy was developed in the 1960s by US socialist sociologist couple Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven (Democratic Socialists of America, Progressives for Obama).
The idea was to bring down capitalism by deliberately getting everybody possible on welfare in order to crash the system and bankrupt the nation.
The infamous ACORN organisation was established to implement this strategy.
In New Zealand the unemployed and beneficiaries rights movement, strong in the 80s and 90s was set up by the Workers Communist League and the Socialist Unity Party for the same purpose.
