20. Some violence is necessary to get a world without a 1%

The world of the 1% is high above the world of the 99%. The differences are maintained because the 1% uses a lot of violence. Each year millions of 99% die of poverty or the presence of wars, including refugees. Many millions of 99% are imprisoned. This violence never touches the 1%.

Special actions are needed to make one world in which all people have the same status. These actions could include some violence but this violence may not endanger the safety of the 99%. What happens to the 1% is of less importance.

In the daily struggles of the 99% for a better life there are no attacks on the 1%. Even in revolutions there was hardly any violence directed at the 1%. Most violence is between protesters and police, both part of the 99%. Only common citizens are hurt and leading people undisturbed continue their selfish and greedy policy.

The 99% should minimise fights with people who also belong to the 99% though are paid and instructed by the 1% to secure the safety of top people. Such fights avoid that leaders are directly pressured.

Leftists and rightists activists should change their action goals. Now they make a lot of noise (and are often damaged considerably) by asking leaders to change policy. People at the top are never influenced in their personal life. The crisis has again proven that the position of the 99% deteriorates when needed to safeguard the superior position of the 1% and their servants.

They say that violence of the 99% against leaders is violence against citizens. Nonsense, common citizens should not be attacked, the target is the top of society, the privileged leaders. Special violence should be used to disturb the life at the top of society avoiding as much as possible damage to the 99%.

The position of the 1% should be undermined, sometimes with violence. Then we take the first steps in the direction of a Humane World without a 1% in which all people are considered to have the same status.

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.
