For more than sixty years I have experienced, participated in and organised quite a few popular street actions. People became active after an outcry over what leading people were doing. But actions were unsuccessful and only copied former actions that were also unsuccessful. Continue reading
Fights with rightist people have hardly any positive results. Such fights care for it that activists have less time to attack the prime target, the 1%, who dominate our life by their great power based on their great surplus of money. Continue reading

The world only changes when the power of the few powerful people on top of the world is undermined. Therefore we need the “Movement against the 1%” that inspires common citizens to carry out many thousands of small actions that disturb the private life of very rich top-people who constantly disturb the private life of the 99%. Continue reading

Some actions have success because they have only small demands. When demands are bigger as stopping new pipelines, preventing that too many people are in prison, that too many blacks are getting long sentences, that the war in Afghanistan is stopped, that ….. results are hardly ever positive. Only many activists are hurt in demonstrations and other actions, are arrested, imprisoned and even killed. For the safety of the activists and for greater successes we need a different kind of actions that not only ask leaders to change faulty decisions but force them to change such decisions. Continue reading

I doubt that last year was as happy as wished for common citizens. In 2017 the five hundred richest people increased their wealth each day by two and a half billion euro disregarding that still a billion common people have hardly enough money to buy enough food to survive.
Millions of people left their countries because wars, hunger, lack of jobs and many other negative factors influence their happiness. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed in wars. Continue reading

All decisions, from the far past up till the present, are taken by powerful (and very rich) decision-takers. The 99% have hardly any influence. The consequences of these decisions can be very bad but only hurt the 99%. It is comparable as what happens during wars, the 99% are damaged, arrested, imprisoned, tortured and killed while the 1% is hardly disturbed. Continue reading

To get more influence the 99% should directly pressure decision-takers. Continue reading

In the USA many actions take place against new oil pipelines. Activists demand that politicians take decisions to stop the construction. That will not happen, politicians agreed with the new pipelines in more or less secret meetings where the 99% is not present. They follow the orders from the real decision-takers, the 1% and their high placed servants as for example the Deep State. Politicians are not very powerful, in first place they carry out policies that are favourable for top-people. What activists want is not important. Most actions in the political sphere hardly ever ask the removal of political servants who time and again take decisions that are not very good for the 99%. Continue reading

“Punching nazis is fun!
But shutting down pipelines is hella important”.
A twitter message on 30-8-2017 by @stimulator, a subversive news show. I do not agree.

We need great ideas to get a better and more humane world.
Great ideas need great targets.
We do not want to change a few small things in the present dubious world but open possibilities to a new world in which all people have the same status, in which all people may challenge any decision that is taken. A world without a super-rich and dominating 1%. Continue reading
