Of course the attacks in Paris are horrendous, only people are killed from the 99% who have no influence on what the 1% and their political servants do. The conclusion is that wars that are being fought in the Third World also start to take place in the First World.
All wars in the past caused tremendous damage to the 99% while the 1% could always escape to other countries and after the wars retake their exclusive position on top of society. The horrendous inequality in the world – a few extreme wealthy people at the top and many hundreds of millions devastating poor at the bottom – is still growing. The greed of the 1% is one of the most important reasons why wars exist. But actions against the 1% hardly exist. The war against IS is again (from both sides) a war in which only the 99% die.
There is of course a big disgust for the Paris actions. But why is there not the same disgust for all horrendous facts that elsewhere hurt the 99%.
Nearly ten million children die each year unnecessary before they are five years old. They can’t get enough help because the needed money is streaming towards the super-rich.
About a billion very poor people are not certain to have the next day enough food to survive. Again the needed money is going to the 1%.
Each year hundreds of thousands of 99% are killed in wars that are influenced and started by the money-grabbing 1%. Tens of millions of people become refugees because they cannot live anymore in their own country.
The attacks in France by IS do not differ much from Western attacks in Syria and Iraq by planes that hardly can be shot down. It are tragic and inadmissible events in which only the 99% are wounded and killed.
All victims belong to the 99% while the 1% continue to live a very nice and undisturbed life.
In the last ten years the number of actions increased and war misery slowly entered the First World. But the 99% remain the only victims, the 1% continue to live safe and extravagant in exclusive mansions. Why should they change their policy. They continue to amass money and power because they are not pressured at all.
The 99% are the only people who suffer from these wars, the 1% and their political and military servants profit. The suffering of the 99% does not have any influence on what the 1% do. The 1% win and the 99% pay the damage.
All wars in the Third World that took place in the last seventy years did not change much. Real change only comes when the 1% are dethroned. Otherwise the 99% continue to be damaged, hurt and killed.
We should not participate in these wars but attack our own 1% who are the cause of this misery.
