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%.
