3. The economy is a disaster. The 1% gets still more and a billion 99% are living on the edge of death.

We have in North-Western Europe still a social security net but in the rest of the world many people are living on the edges. No money for health can mean a sudden death.

Easy to make products are produced by Third-World people with very low wages in often dangerous factories. When there is no work there is no payment. The products are transferred to the richer parts of the world.

Huge profits increase the wealth of the local and the international 1% who have the power to get more money for an extravagant life. Even better paid labourers in the richer parts of the world cannot get this extravagancy. First the needs of the top have to be fulfilled and only then there is some money for common citizens. That is the principle of our economy. People are not considered having the same status but some people have the “right” to get much more money (at the cost of the life of many 99% people).

The financial-economic crisis has not decreased the incomes and the wealth of the 1%. The rest pays. That is what happens in economy, top people determine their own income and wealth and lower people are secondary. The power and money pyramid should be destroyed. People are not born naked, some babies have already a silver spoon in their hand.

Society is dominated by one golden rule, money is the pivotal point in all decisions. Money rules, who does not have money is dependent on what the rich decide.
This paradigm, this international law should be replaced by the idea that decisions are made on the assumption that all people have the same status.
A new paradigm will bring a new world.

The only small question is how to achieve this change.
The answer is not too difficult. Prevent that rich people can spend massive amounts of money. All articles and services that never can be used or bought by common citizens should become action targets.
This can be guided by the slogan “Spending 200.000 euro in one year should be the limit!”, http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis/Revolution 21.htm
I have described some practical examples in my latest book, “How to make Revolution, developing the Fourth People’s Power”, free to download from my site “Down with any elite” http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis

About Joost van Steenis

My latest book "How to make Revolution, developing the Fourth People's Power", can be downloaded for free from my site http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis. It contains new ideas how to take the money and power away from the most powerful people, the elite. It strives to get a new society in which not money is the pivotal point of all discussions but the idea that all people have the same status. New action means are introduced to reach this paradigm shift (a revolution) that concentrate on direct actions in the living sphere of the elite.
