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.

Chapter 1. How to make revolution and why did past revolutions fail? Activists should develop the autonomous Fourth People’s Power

Why is there no revolution?
Because we, activists, do something wrong.
Why were successful revolutions turned around?
Because we, activists, did something wrong. Let’s do it better! All revolutions have been bloody – the blood of the 99%.
The next revolution should only see blood – if any – of the 1%.

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. ………………………

33. Changing the money paradigm in the same status paradigm. The idea that all people have the same status should dominate all decisions

All societies are founded on basic ideas, on paradigms. The 1% use their power to strengthen the present paradigm that money rules. Any activity is judged by the effect it has on the flow of money that goes from down below to the upper layers. Money dominates everything, people are secondary. A paradigm shift, replacing the dominant role of money by the idea that all people have the same status, is a revolution. It supports the idea that movements must be leaderless because leaders have another status then followers.

31. Mass actions are revolts and not (yet) revolutions. Even millions of 99% on the streets gives us no lasting power

A Humane World is not ruled by the idea that money dominates all decisions but by the idea that all people have the same status. Such a new world can only come into being after a revolution, a fundamental change of the basic rules that determine society. Not only society but also the 99% change during revolutionary times. They become self-conscious because they have developed an own independent power.

32. Egypt, revolution or revolt? Mass actions caused a lot of damage to the 99% but the 1% continued to rule

I like people’s uprisings because it shows the 99% are still alive. Revolts express the hope on a better world. An uprising is however not a revolution and most uprisings do not result in real change. Actions restricted to mass gatherings on streets in town centres do not disturb the power structure. Some attacks maybe directed against the most visible oppressing opponents, the police, but the 1% remain untouched. The Egyptian army was only used after two years of street activities to help the Egyptian 1% to retake their place at the top of society. Continue reading
