Immigration, Islam and the deliberate crashing of the welfare system

-

THE FALL of capitalism is a long-term goal of Marxism, but a major obstacle stands in the way. The polity of Western nations is built on commerce and its vital contribution to state revenue. The NHS, social services, education and benefits are basically funded by a wealth-generating sector. Hard leftists never cease to demand more public spending on favoured causes, apparently unconcerned by the economic impact. That’s because they don’t like the economy as it is, and strive to replace it by any means necessary.

Across the Atlantic the parlous state of government finances, with debt spiralling out of control, is the result of decades of influence of radical ideology, often emanating from Columbia University, seat of Marion King Hubbert of Technocracy Inc in the 1930s, Cultural Marxist Herbert Marcuse in the 1950s, and globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski in the 1970s.

In 1966 two Columbia sociologists devised a plan to wreck the social welfare system in the US, purportedly to create an egalitarian society. Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven were political activists inspired by Saul Alinsky, the militant Chicago professor.

The Cloward-Piven strategy entailed deliberately overwhelming federal assistance programmes which were perceived as parsimonious. The idea was that by increasing poverty and debt, the ensuing social and economic chaos would lead to introduction of a guaranteed income for all. States would be relieved of their welfare burden, which would pass to national government. The idea was pushed in the Democrat Party, where it fitted the nurturing of dependent client groups.

In his 2005 book Winning the Race, John McWhorter argues that the Cloward-Piven strategy ‘created generations of black people for whom working for a living is an abstraction’. The global financial crisis was  caused not by capitalism gone wrong, but by subprime mortgages in the US, recklessly issued to poor black and Hispanic citizens with little prospect of repaying the loan. As Robert Chandler noted in the Washington Times, such people were exploited as ‘sacrificial shock troops’ to bankrupt the system. 

Arguably, the Cloward-Piven strategy is already in progress.  Unsustainable mass immigration has been unleashed in North America, the UK and western Europe, despite public concerns. Younger generations have been indoctrinated to regard open borders as sacrosanct and any criticism of the relentless influx as racist.

For decades, Britons have been sold the lie that the NHS would collapse without its legions of foreign workers. The reality is that on average migrants cost society more than they contribute, because they tend to be unskilled on arrival and their large families put pressure on housing, schools and health care. Companies like immigration because it brings cheap labour, and as you can see in any large town or city it’s a boon to the construction industry.

Mass immigration has been compared to the Ponzi scheme of the 1920s, which led to the Great Depression. But it’s worse than that.  Lax border control is not a political failure that happens to make money for greedy capitalists. Instead, it’s a deliberate transformation of Western society, most clearly articulated and encouraged by ‘philanthropist’ oligarchs such as George Soros, from its traditionally Christian, socially conservative and ethnically white profile to a populace of Asian, African and mixed-race incomers and a dwindling white minority. 

A major reason for this is that whereas white Britons still believe in individual autonomy, freedom of speech, democracy, privacy and property rights, the multitude from afar are more predisposed to collectivisation. Unskilled immigrants expect nothing more than a flat in a high-rise block, as urban planners install their Smart City of digital surveillance and restricted resource consumption.

That’s why Muslim immigration is so appealing. The Middle East and other parts of Asia and north Africa did not need communism to instil order: this was already achieved by Islam. And unlike communist regimes, which were generally unpopular, Islamic creed creates fanatical adherents. Far from integrating with the host community, Muslims are committed to their religion and social mores. While white women are having one or no children, Muslim women are filling buggies and keeping humanity above replacement level.

While Muslim workers are often more industrious than their white neighbours, much of their low-paid work is becoming obsolete. The huge numbers who have entered the UK since Tony Blair opened the floodgates are a net burden on the welfare state. Half of Muslim adults are not paying income tax (although that does not mean they aren’t working). The thousands of young men arriving recently in ‘small boats’ are housed in four-star hotels and given bank accounts with automatic deposits, at huge public expense.

Immigration and Islam are very useful to the Cloward-Piven plan. The World Economic Forum’s Great Reset will complete the controlled demolition. Automation and artificial intelligence will replace most jobs, and much of the workforce will be reduced to the status described by Yuval Noah Harari, scientific adviser to the WEF, as ‘useless eaters’. Instead of earning wages, people of working age and ability will be sustained by universal basic income. 

Facilitated by a digital currency, a basic universal income will ensure total dependence on the state. Consider every social policy in the UK since the 1960s by outcomes rather than the official narrative, and you can detect the historical determinism of two Marxists at Columbia University. It’s been a long march of slash and burn, and it is not the fault of Muslims that our politicians took this path.
