Atul Gawande like all Fifth Column Treasonous Media Marxist apologists resorts to half truth, innuendo’s and straight up lies to create a fictional world where only Marxist/Socialist ideology can correct the evils of a capitalist world.
Ours can be an unforgiving country. Paul Sullivan was in his fifties, college-educated, and ran a successful small business in the Houston area. He owned a house and three cars. Then the local economy fell apart. Business dried up. He had savings, but, like more than a million people today in Harris County, Texas, he didn’t have health insurance. “I should have known better,” he says.
“I should have known better,” he says. Paul Sullivan took a calculated risk, every human being alive does this every single day of their lives. Most of the time doing so pays off, but not always. County morgues around the world are filled with the bodies of people who took calculated risks and died as a result of those calculated risks. No political ideology or agenda least of all a Marxist ideology or agenda will ever fix that.
For 99.99 percent of human history no medical insurance could have spared Paul Sullivan what he went through. The fact that Paul Sullivan is even alive to wander from homeless shelter to homeless shelter is a testament to the advances in medical technology and knowledge of the last 100 years. Advances that occurred thanks to Capitalism, not Marxism, Socialism or Communism. Marxism, socialism and communism on the other hand have killed more innocent human being in the last 100 years, than all of the wars and diseases on earth in the last 2000 years combined.
Atul Gawande goes on throughout his pathetic Marxist apologist rant to attempt to shift blame from his Marxist fellow travelers attempting to subvert the American Constitution to the Republican Party (whom I have no great love of) for the coming collapse of the economy.
This kind of obstructionism has been seen before. After the Supreme Court’s ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, in 1954, Virginia shut down schools in Charlottesville, Norfolk, and Warren County rather than accept black children in white schools.
As bald faced lies go, this is a doozy, but not unexpected from a member of the Fifth Column Treasonous Media. Let’s be 100 percent perfectly crystal clear here, there is absolutely no moral or logical equivalency between attempting to prevent the most vile and evil political ideology the world have ever known from “Fundamentally Transforming” America into a tyrannical totalitarian dictatorship and a bunch of racists trying to keep their school system segregated.
After playing a false analogy race card Atul Gawande whips out yet another liar liar pants on fire whooper.
Conservatives keep hoping that they can drive the system to collapse. That won’t happen. Enough people, states, and health-care interests are committed to making it work, just as the Massachusetts version has for the past seven years. And people now have a straightforward way to resist the forces of obstruction: sign up for coverage, if they don’t have it, and help others do so as well.
Not just no, but equivalently no. Conservative are not attempting to collapse the system, that is exactly what Obamacare was designed to do. Conservatives are attempting to prevent the collapse which is the sole and exclusive consequence that Obamacare is and was intended to produce. Dedicated Marxist useless imbecile that he is, I feel relatively confident that Atul Gawande is fully versed on something known as the Cloward-Pivens Strategy. Obamacare is NOTHING less than the Cloward-Pivens Strategy put into action.
The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate 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”. Cloward and Piven were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. The strategy was formulated in a May 1966 article in liberal magazine The Nation titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty”.
The two stated that many Americans who were eligible for welfare were not receiving benefits, and that a welfare enrollment drive would strain local budgets, precipitating a crisis at the state and local levels that would be a wake-up call for the federal government, particularly the Democratic Party. There would also be side consequences of this strategy, according to Cloward and Piven. These would include: easing the plight of the poor in the short-term (through their participation in the welfare system); shoring up support for the national Democratic Party then-splintered by pluralistic interests (through its cultivation of poor and minority constituencies by implementing a national “solution” to poverty); and relieving local governments of the financially and politically onerous burdens of public welfare (through a national “solution” to poverty).

3 Impact of the strategy
Cloward and Piven’s article is focused on forcing the Democratic Party, which in 1966 controlled the presidency and both houses of the United States Congress, to take federal action to help the poor. They stated that full enrollment of those eligible for welfare “would produce bureaucratic disruption in welfare agencies and fiscal disruption in local and state governments” that would “deepen existing divisions among elements in the big-city Democratic coalition: the remaining white middle class, the working-class ethnic groups and the growing minority poor. To avoid a further weakening of that historic coalition, a national Democratic administration would be constrained to advance a federal solution to poverty that would override local welfare failures, local class and racial conflicts and local revenue dilemmas.” They wrote:
“ The ultimate objective of this strategy—to wipe out poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income—will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income. ”
Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven “proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy.”
Focus on Democrats
The authors pinned their hopes on creating disruption within the Democratic Party. “Conservative Republicans are always ready to declaim the evils of public welfare, and they would probably be the first to raise a hue and cry. But deeper and politically more telling conflicts would take place within the Democratic coalition,” they wrote. “Whites – both working class ethnic groups and many in the middle class – would be aroused against the ghetto poor, while liberal groups, which until recently have been comforted by the notion that the poor are few… would probably support the movement. Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”
Resisting evil is never an unconscionable act, Marxism and it’s bastard children Socialism and Communism are the political equivalent of a Perpetual Motion Machine. Those who agitate advocate or support Marxism and it’s bastard children are all either imbeciles studying to be morons and failing miserably, or they are sociopaths. Atul Gawande, like the vast majority of the Fifth Column Treasonous Media undoubtedly falls into the former, rather than the later camp, to arrogant and narcissistic and mind-numbingly stupid to have bothered doing their home work on Marxism.
In every single attempt at creating a perfect Marxist society since Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels devised this insane political ideology, the very first people lined up against the wall once the Marxist coup has succeeded have always been the Fifth Column Treasonous Media useless imbeciles who put the Marxist dictators into power in the first place. The reason is as rational and logical as it gets, since they were the ones who brought down the previous government, they must be eliminated to prevent them repeating what they did once the realization hits them that all they have done is replace one corrupt government with one that is 100 times as corrupt and evil. It’s the exact same reason that Stalin chased Trotsky all the way to Mexico to have him murdered. It’s why Castro forced Che into exile and eventually betrayed him to the CIA.
