From Discover The Networks.

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven (today Piven is an honorary chair for the Democratic Socialists of America), the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

The fall of capitalism would inevitably be a nightmare to mankind. History has shown that socialism doesn’t work in the long run. It sounds nice in theory, but not everyone plays by the same rules and it eventually has everyone standing in bread lines.

When you implement “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” magically, everyone starts having quite a lot of need and very little ability.

Here’s a neat site that explains in full just why socialism doesn’t work.
