⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
Cloward Piven Strategy
The Cloward-Piven strategy is a method of attack whereby a system is flooded with unnecessary amounts of bullshit. The resultant overflow is intended to unbalance a system and cause its eventual collapse. Why is this important to ED readers now? Because your very own President and his pack of grinning hyenas are using this form of attack to destabilize and destroy America.
Besides all that, the strategy has become a candy-coated keyword that Republicans have been spewing quite a bit lately.
Initially proposed by two long-haired hippy sociology professors at Columbia, the Cloward/Piven strategy was supposed to point out flaws within Lyndon Johnson's “Great Society.” the two professors, who happened to be a married couple, argued that the current welfare system was not designed to work for all people, but was intended only for those who lived in urban areas and who were of minority status. They went on to state, that if social programs such as welfare were accessed by white, middle class groups, the whole system would collapse under the strain of all the millions of lazy blobs trying to “get theirs” from the government. Fortunately for the United States, some people have an ounce of integrity, and the strategy was never utilized.
Even still, in the aftermath of such an attack, vast gaps between law and practice would be exposed by showing that the government itself cannot handle paying everybody everything all of the time. In a nutshell, the strategy purposed to do the following:
1. The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they can.
2. The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or create new benefits.
3. The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.
—Barrack Hussein Obama
Obama and the political machine behind him were elected under the guise of CHANGE. This keyword, used along with other such keywords as “unprecedented,” “Eco-friendly,” and “transparency” sounded like great ideas to a tired and ailing American public who was disenchanted with the war in Iraq, social problems at home, and scandalous political behavior locally and federally. In fact, people were climbing over each other to vote for Obama, and ate his rhetoric like a fatty dives into a Baconator value meal at Wendy's.
But the American public did not read between the lines.
Obama's real mission is not to change the American governmental system by bettering the existing mechanism, but rather to destroy the system and replace it with a form of socialism that intends to redistribute wealth.
—It's a conspiracy I tell you!
Currently, the global economy is weak and the American economy is part of that problem. Early in the Obama presidency, a stimulus bill was enacted that drove over 700 billion dollars into financial institutions in (a supposed) effort to prop up ailing banks. All it really did was increase job losses and increase demands for such governmental aid as welfare, unemployment, and social security benefits.
Next, by plowing billions of dollars into ACORN, an illegal community organizing thug group, the Obama administration was able to steal money from normal American citizens and give it over to radical groups. These groups, who share Obama's plan, will provide no aid to ailing American citizens, but only wish to “flip” the current status quo and make hard working, responsible citizens poorer each day. Since the economy was already in the shitter, community organizers were allowed money through a planned campaign of deficit spending...further eroding the economy.
Yet another step in this plan is to introduce a Healthcare plan that will cost trillions of dollars without causing any change in Americans health, care, or pocketbooks. It is literally spending money on nothing. By removing Americans from the process, Obama sabotages the current system of laws and sets into motion a decaying system that fails exponentially with every new day that passes. The ensuing crapflood of government programs, people screaming for help, and banks who manage to make money disappear will eventually overbalance the system, causing it to collapse.
Remember back when Obama got elected by having his supporters scream “CHANGE” over and over again? Obama doesn't want to change the system for the better, he wants to totally destroy the system. Revenge? Probably.
—Francis Fox Piven
Once the nation is rocked, it is the perfect time to move in with a new form of government, pretty much burning the Constitution along the way. Americans are getting what they voted for.
Skip ahead to 25:00 or so, to get to the meat of the matter.
