55. Action methods are wrong. The 99% are damaged and the 1% remain undisturbed.

Actions are not wars.
Wars are bad, terrific. All victims are from the 99% and the 1% who cause wars are not touched at all.
The Golden Rule for Actions that damage to the 99% should be minimal and pressure on the 1% ever increasing is contradictionary to what happens in wars. But actions seem wars because all victims are from the 99%. The 1% who are the reason for actions are not disturbed at all. Actions should target the 1% and avoid damage to the 99%. The present action methods are wrong.
Actions have sometimes some success. The Squatters Movement in which I took part gave thousands of houses to common citizens but it lasted only a few years. Then the possibility to get a decent house again became difficult. The needs of the 99% remained secondary because politicians did not build enough cheap houses.

There are many small action successes but the influence of the 1% on what happens in society has greatly increased in the last fifty years.

During the squatters time small autonomous groups of 99% took houses and because there were many actions the police could not take back all squatted houses.
Most actions do not take anything, they only ask leaders to change their policy that favours in the first place the Haves and disregard the interests of the Have-nots. Just wonder why Climate Conferences do not forbid articles that only can be used by the 1% or just forbid the advertisement business. When all people in the world should have the same life as people in the richest countries the Climate kills everyone.

There are hardly actions with lasting success. Money rules and the wish of the 1% to get still more money by producing still more and increasing the profits stops any improvement. Leftist or rightist actions that only ask and not force leaders to change remain without lasting success. The 1% decide and the 99% have to accept.

We need a new kind of actions directed at the extravagant lifestyle of the 1%. Actions that do not hinder common 99%. We need actions that take away the money and the power from a small group of people that have the sole right to use power for their own benefit.

Let’s make it impossible for anyone to buy and use goods, services and places that cannot be acquired by people who cannot spend more than 200.000 euro in one year.

About Joost van Steenis

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.
