Frances Fox Piven calls the jobless to violence.

In her recent article posted by "The Nation" Frances Fox Piven calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. Like the original call by her and her late Husband Richard Cloward The Nation is still ready and willing to be beacon of violence and revolution in the U.S. So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs, she asks? "After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEO's report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn't the unemployed be on the march? Why aren't they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs"?

Our nation has not long to go before we see actions like this as a real possibility. If you have a subscription to the The Nation you should share this with as many people as you can, otherwise you might want to get one, so you can stay up on the actions and strategy of the Progressive left.
