The 1% wants to dominate society. In foreign countries 99% are bombed while local, reactionary 1% are protected and supported. But only when the local 1% subordinates to the international 1%.
Also inside their own country the 1% want as much money as they can get while they intensively degrade the own 99%.
The USA has most prisoners in the whole world, more than in the Gulag Archipelago in the former Soviet-Union. Millions of 99% are arrested and imprisoned while the 1% are never in prison. Laws support their way of life and control the life of the 99%.
Despite the financial and economic crisis the income and wealth of the 1% is rising while there are already fifty million Americans who must go to food banks because they lack money to buy food.
Many people have been killed by bombings in for example Afghanistan but the American army may not destroy the heroine production fields. These drugs stream to the USA despite the so-called “War on drugs”. A big part of the profits of this trade stealthily disappears in the pockets of the 1%.
Coloured people are still in a negative position and immigrants are only welcome because they are cheap labour.
There are many other factors as the support of the Indian leading class while in that country still two million kids die each year before they are five years old. Or the Saudi-Arabian leading clan that prevents that women may even drive a car. Many degrading measures are taken because of the dominating rule of money, heaps of money for the few at the top and less and less money when you go down to the bottom of society. Without money you are an easy victim for the leaders.
I see hardly actions against the 1% who in silent backrooms give the orders to control and disturb the life of the 99%. That should change. Most actions take place on streets in town centres against the political servants of the 1%. But by pressuring servants you never get any change.
