World War II was the last time rich Western countries fought each other on the battle field in which many millions of 99% were killed.
After World War II decolonisation started with new wars. The Korean, Algerian, Vietnam and Arab Wars killed again millions of 99%.
I often wondered why these wars were not exported to the rich countries that used the deadly weapons. But education was too low, weapons too weak and the theory concentrated on fighting in the own country, making free zones and in the end ousting killing armies that mostly used weapons and planes that hardly could be touched by the primitive weapons of insurrectionists.
The world has changed, it is now easier to penetrate in Western countries than in the past. Transport has improved as the knowledge of Third World people how to use more effective weapons. The fighting starts to include the First World.
However, the killing of the 99% in Third World countries continues and the wealth of the 1% is still growing. The local Third World 1% mostly support (and are supported by) the rich countries 1%. Many of them are rich dictators who disregard the needs of the own 99%. Leaders who want a slightly different line are still deposed of as happened to Lumumba, Mossadegh, Allende, Saddam Hussein or Kaddafi. The leadership in the Third World remains in the hands of people who are to a great height obedient to the 1% of the rich Western countries.
In the past only a few actions were carried out in the rich West but now actions start to occur also in the rich West. I had expected it already during the Vietnam War but then it did not yet happen.
These actions and the movements that carry them out are still not directed towards a more equal Humane Society without a 1%. The attacks hurt the Western 99% and not the Western 1%. Still the 99% kill each other in wars that increase the power and the money of the rich and powerful 1%. The number of billionaires is rising fast. Actions should change from common wars (in which the 99% are killed) to wars on places where the 1% live.
Without a direct attack on the 1% the 99% continue to be killed, wounded, imprisoned, tortured, made refugee etc. for the benefit of the cruel, extremely rich, privileged, selfish and greedy 1%.
Only by actions against the 1% there is a chance for a Humane World without a 1% in which all people have the same status.
