32. Dictator Mubarak was replaced by a military dictator. Both were supported by the Western 1% who profit from them.

Many countries are ruled by dictators or regimes that do not allow that common citizens have much influence. These regimes are hardly attacked by Western politicians. Of course not, in those countries the political servants of the Western 1% want an industry that favours the 1% and not the indigeneous population.
Factories are build to produce textiles and many other easy to make products we need. Salaries of the workers are very low and work conditions abominable. Only the local and the Western 1% get a lot of money. Production of goods for the local population is hardly developed. Continue reading

31. Protests don’t help, the 1% continue to live extravagantly.

Protests in rich Western countries are small because most people know it hardly helps. The wars in the Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Palestine etc. just continue. The victims and killers all belong to the 99%. The 1% continue to earn money without being involved in the fights. In secret back rooms they arrange fightings between parts of the 99%. Continue reading

30. Actions against the IS or against the 1%?

The IS does terrible things but not worse as what our 1% does and did. A few years after World War II, in Indonesia then still a Dutch colony, the Dutch army arrested hundreds of men in Sulawesi, took their clothes away and shot them. Everywhere Western armies invade independent countries killing common citizens and supporting the local 1% to control the 99%.

Before IS existed at least a million Iraqis were killed with the support of Western armies during the Iraq War. They want – just as in the colonial era – the Iraqis to live as the Western countries like them to live. The local 1% are never killed and continue to get still more money.

The IS exist because the miserable situation for most 99% continues to exist. The rich West supports awful governments. Bombing the IS does not help, the 1% have to be dethroned. Groups that want a world without a 1% have never been supported by the West.

It is atrocious that many 99% are killed in war zones. And that nothing is done about the nearly ten million kids that die each year before they are five years old in countries where the Western 1% support the greedy, selfish and cruel local 1%. We are told that the IS is the greatest danger so we must fight them. This fight between two parts of the 99% results in a slaughtering of each other while the 1% continue to amass power and money.

The Western European countries are formed by a lot of violence during the last five centuries. In a great part of the rest of the world there was no struggle (they were colonies) and countries were formed by colonists.

We should withdraw from non-Western countries. Let them keep their oil and commodities for their own future. When they independently develop they will not make the same mistakes we made with world wars and economic-financial crises. In a century there maybe a better world. In the meantime we can take the power and the money away from our own 1%. They are dangerous for our life. We should not attack other 99% but use our energy to put pressure on the extravagant position of the 1% who cause most of the misery.

We are forced to fight against other 99% by our own 1% so they can get the money to replace their yacht of 50 million euro by a yacht of 100 million euro. The 1% do not do that to help the 99% but to control and exploit them.

I do not like the IS but actions against them are only killing the 99%. We should use actions that do not hinder or kill our kind of people. We should only be active in pressuring the life and minds of the 1%, the greatest and wealthiest power in the world..

29. Inequality rises everywhere and the position of the 99% deteriorates.

The crisis accelerated the inequality. The rich got more and the 99% got less. Society became less humane. But resistance against the selfish and greedy 1% does hardly exist. Continue reading

28. Nobody attacks the power and the money of the 1%, there are only fights between the 99%.

The Western (and richest) part of the 1% controls the world and there are no actions against them. Their rule is not beneficial for the 99% but nobody prevents them to rule. Not only increases the income of the 1% enormously but also too many 99% are arrested, tortured and even killed – not only in wars but also in refugee camps or by lack of food.
The 1% who cause this misery are untouched and continue to live extravagantly on an income level common citizens never can reach.

27. The Blockupy mass action activated people but not in the right direction.

Blockupy organised a big mass-action against the opening of the new European Central Bank in Frankfurt on the 18th of March. Did it have success and gave it any idea about future actions? No, all action took place in one day and the Bank opened anyhow. Continue reading

26. The misery and subordination of the 99% continues when the 1% is not attacked

Because of the greed of the 1% problems as the ebola-crisis, the nearly ten million kids that die each year before they are five years old, the millions of refugees from wars and poverty, the billion people that hardly know if they have the next day enough food, are not solved. Continue reading

25. The 99% fight each other instead of fighting the 1%

In all fights and wars the 99% are killed, wounded, arrested, tortured or damaged and many become refugees. It is caused by the local and international 1% who remain untouched by any action. Undisturbed they continue to control the country and to export expensive commodities to the rich West.
Only sometimes the local 1% have to emigrate for a while. They take their power and money with them to live their extravagant life elsewhere. After a few years they return and again rule their former country

24. Only the 99% die, not the local and international 1%


World War II was a war between rich countries but only the 99% suffered and died. The 1% remained unhurt and privileged on top of the world.

After World War II we saw decolonisation wars. Again many 99% died and the 1% increased their power and wealth. Millions of refugees (because of wars and poverty) did not live very comfortable and many died.

23. It is an illusion to think that democracy improves the situation of the 99%

The 99% are subordinate to the 1%. The crisis has again proven that mistakes of the 1% have to be paid by the victims, the 99%. The 1% have become even wealthier and more powerful.

Still many 99% have the illusion that democracy is the best way to organise society though they easily can see that a small group of not-elected people (the 1%) has much more wealth, possessions and power than the great majority ever can get. The inequality is also growing in democracies. Rich democratic countries kill many 99% in wars in not so democratic countries. A fight against a local 1% who just as in our countries increase their wealth, possessions and power is nearly made impossible.

While it should be a human rule that by birth all people have the same status, children of the 1% have a much higher status than 99% children. Democracy is not the way to get a Humane World without a 1%.

It is an illusion to take part in elections but people think there is nothing else to fight for. In this way the high position of the 1% is not undermined and the subordination and misery of the 99% is kept alive without any sight on improvement. The 1% have an increasing power to secure and extend their privileged economic position.

If you vote or do not take part in the election process is of secondary importance. The first goal of the 99% in political activities should be to attack and undrmine the wealth and power of the 1%. Only then we get real improvement, a society in which all people have the same status and the same power. A world in which the 1% and their lackeys have not always the right to improve their own situation without caring what happens to the 99%.
