When the 1% cannot spend their surplus money they stop amassing money. Then we get change because the reason to produce something will not be money but the wish to increase the well-being of all people. When money reigns decisions are based on getting as much money as possible and to increase the wealth of the Happy Few, the 1%.
Many decisions seem to be taken by politicians but the basic lines in society (still more money for the 1% as the most important reason to work) are determined by the 1%. These superrich are fairly unknown to the 99%.
The rights of the 99% are dominated by the richest people who control the silent law that money should reign and not the interests of all people.
To defeat the 1% we need the support of all people. Now politics is dominated by differences between rightist and leftist tendencies inside the 99%. Therefore the 1% can reign in silence, they are hardly disturbed by people’s actions. The solution of the leftist-rightist differences has to be postponed.
Actions have to be directed against the 1% who promote that money is the most important item in the world. Money decides all relations
Directly pressuring the 1% is easy but it needs a new mentality of the 99%. It is even more easy to organise mass-actions but the results of such mass-activities are small. The 1% remain on top and the 99% remain secondary people.
Money is the central action point. We should prevent that no one can use too much money by disturbing the places where that money is used. We can prevent that anyone can spend more than 200.000 euro in one year. Of course most 99% never can spend more than 200.000 euro but the 1% can. That must change. Then money will lose its dominating position and people become more important.
People should be more important than money. We should break the power of the 1% by preventing they ever can spend more than 200.000 euro in one year. The means are simple, direct actions that disturb the private living situation of the 1%. I have also no objection against people who destroy objects, services and buildings that only can be bought and used by the superrich 1%.
