56. The 62 richest people own as much as the 3.7 billion poorest ones. We should stop this theft of wealth.

Money is more and more concentrated in the pockets of a few very rich people, the 1%. Five years ago 388 people had the same wealth as the poorest half of the world population. Now it are only 62 people. But I see no actions at all against these antisocial people. Not the political, industrial and financial servants of the 1% decide, but the 1% themselves. Still greater streams of money flow towards them.
Why are there no actions against these dictators?
The richest people do not only have money but also power that is closely connected to money. Power and money assure that the 1% can spend much more than common people ever can. Money rules and only the 1% draw the strings that cause that more and more money flows towards the highest elite of the world.

The figures about the 62 richest people come from Oxfam Novib that brings them in the open in Davos where the World Economic Forum takes place (the WEF is an international 1% club). Oxfam still thinks that the 1% will listen but they never do, they live in another world, the world of the 1%.Our target should be a world without a 1%.

Oxfam thinks that inequality diminishes by taxing the 1% higher. Obviously they do not understand why the rich do not pay much taxes. Not the servants of the 1%  decide but the 1% themselves – especially when it concerns the possibility of rich people to get still more money.

Money is the source of their power that gives them the possibility to get goods, services, servants or places common people never can get. We should disturb those goods, places and services, we should prevent that they can buy and use these extravagant stuff.

Action targets should be all goods, services and places that never can be acquired by citizens who cannot spend more than 200.000 euro in one year. These actions do not disturb the 99% but only the 1%. In the end the world will change when they cannot spend their extravagant money, when they cannot buy exclusive items nobody else can buy.

Then we get a world without a 1% in which the human problems of the 99% stand on first place to be solved and not the problem of a few people how to get still more money. They have already far too much money.

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.
