Politically, the only way for a radical Marxist to win the presidency in the United States is to strictly apply and practice the Alinsky method.
America is not like any country on earth. Most Americans are obsessed with freedom and their bill of rights. Thus, the only way to get the votes and support of Middle America, according to radical Marxist tactician Saul Alinsky is to fool the people and to deceptively speak their language.
Alinsky’s most successful students are U.S. Pres. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
America’s radical Marxists understood that the only way to fundamentally change America’s political system (to convert it to Socialism) is to destroy it from within, first economically and then politically.
Economically, the only way to collapse America’s economy is to strictly apply the Cloward–Piven strategy.
This Cloward–Piven strategy, created by Columbia University professors Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, is political-economic strategy designed to overload and weaken America’s public welfare system in order to trigger and accelerate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.
This is what is happening in America today.
The radical Marxist products of Columbia University and the so-called purist Marxist products of the University of the Philippines differ in terms of fundamental concepts and strategy.
The CU Marxists, like the Frankfurt School intellectuals, were what Karl Marx called “communists”. They clearly understood their role. They knew they were the leaders of the Marxist or proletarian movement. The communists, according to Marx, are “the most advanced and resolute section of the working-class parties of every country, that section which pushes forward all others.”
They are what I consider “Marxist thinkers”, as they understood basic concepts and the value of strategy.
They knew they couldn’t defeat the residual American system via an armed, bloody revolution. They humbly understood they could only change the system with Socialism by infiltrating the government and destroying it from within.
On the other hand, the American Marxists are what CPP-NPA leader Jose Maria Sison would call “Revisionists”. But Sison, a UP product, is what every genuine Marxist thinker or intellectual should consider a “brain-dead tactician”.
I suspect that Sison, who considers himself the most genuine, truest Marxist on this planet, would reject the Alinsky method and the Cloward–Piven strategy as nothing but revisionist tools.
All Marxist products of the University of the Philippines are primitive, atavistic thinkers. All they know is brute force. Perhaps it’s because they are actually what Marx called “racial trash”. They think and behave as though they were perceptual creatures; they’re savages. Ironically, these UP products are mostly diploma-toting barbarians.
JoMa Sison often labeled SocDems and “non-purist” Marxists as “Revisionists” when he’s living a bourgeoisie lifestyle in a market-oriented country (the Netherlands) that was once dominated by SocDems. What a bloody hypocrite!
