Chapter 42. Actions and action targets. Preventing amassing and using too much money guides the actions of the 99%

“The guerrilla fights the war of the flea, and his military enemy suffers the dog’s disadvantages: too much to defend; too small, ubiquitous, and agile an enemy to come to grips with” (Roland Taber). We are small and numerous and actions should also be small and numerous, complying with our strength. A flea can pick up a grain of sand, hundred thousand fleas replace a mountain.

Chapter 41. Practical ideas to guide actions. Actions should be based on and judged by the new paradigm that all people have the same status

“In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack – the direct and the indirect; yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of manoeuvers” (Sun Tzu). The goal is taking the power and the money away from the 1% and that the separation between the worlds of the 1% and the 99% disappears. Actions should be quite different from past actions that did not succeed in getting a Humane World. People stand central so action targets are people who restrict the freedom, privacy and the well-being of the 99%. The same status means that activists act autonomously without leaders.

Chapter 34. Changing the minds of the 99% and of the 1%. The same status paradigm will penetrate and change all minds.

When we want a different kind of decisions that are beneficial for all people and not in the first place for a small privileged group we must determine why decisions are taken and who takes them. The privileged living situation of decision-takers is one of the prime reasons for their one-sided decisions. They look at what happens in their own environment and not what happens to the 99%. We must change the mind and the environment of the most powerful people, the 1%, who only see their own kind. Therefore we have to penetrate in their private living sphere.

Chapter 27. Revolutions need movements not organisations. Leaders of organisations restrict the creativity of individual 99%

Organisations have a pyramidal structure with leaders at the top and soldiers at the basis. They are not the right instrument to open the road to a society without a 1%, a society without a pyramid of power and money. Such organisations carry already the seeds from which a new 1% can grow. That is proven after communist revolutions. “Revolutionary” organisations are deeply influenced by the dominating money paradigm. They have paid leaders, offices, employees and costly possessions. Orders come from above as in the society they want to change. For a revolution we need something different. Mao Tse-tung saw that his best strategy in the guerrilla war was to defend nothing, that conceals the weakness of the communist forces and exploits their strength, the capacity to move at speed and appear at the time and the place of their choosing, surprising the enemy. That is not possible when the organisation has possessions.

Chapter 17. Are the 1% the only target? Also lower bosses can be pressured

People stand central so the question is not what is the target but who is the target. Targets are all people who take decisions that violate or negatively influence the life, the freedom, the privacy or the well-being of the 99% often for their own benefit or the benefit of their bosses, the 1%. The 99% have hardly influence on decisions taken over them. To get a Humane Society without a 1% it is necessary to target the 1% who keep the power and money pyramid standing up. In the revolutionary period the 99% develop an own power that blocks any new 1%.

Chapter 16. Quotes about the privileged place of the 1% in our society. The reason why the 1% are the ultimate target

Some quotes about the special place of the 1% and their selfishness. They seem hostile aliens that enslave the 99%. The 1% live in a separated, exclusive, extravagant and privileged world where the 99% are only allowed to come as servants . To get a Humane World we must creatively disturb the world of the 1% and make it uninhabitable.

Chapter 15. The separated and exclusive world of the 1%. The reason why the 1% want to keep their privileged position

Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft when we are hard, and cynical were we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different”. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

Chapter 2. Revolutions only succeed when the 1% is dethroned. Then we get a world without a dominant 1%

“One of the symptoms of revolution is the sudden increase in the number of ordinary people who take an active interest in politics” (Lenin).
Revolutions do not fall from the skies. Four factors promote revolutions and prevent that ever a new 1% get power and most of the money. The situation of the 99%, the situation of the 1%, new inspiring ideas and new action ideas to challenge powerful people. When the situation is ripe many 99% who were inactive before become forerunners in unruly revolutionary times.

0. Preface. Why is there no revolution

Only a Revolution changes the idea that money dominates all decisions in the idea that all people have the same status. For a Humane Society we must take the power and the money away from the 1%. The separated and extravagant world of the 1% should be made uninhabitable. ………………………
