61. We need a guerrilla, we are not an army controlled by generals who order us what to do.

The present actions are comparable with how an army works. Some planners (like generals) organise and the masses carry out the actions. Only the 99% are hurt and the well-paid generals, servants of the 1%, remain untouched. Just as in the big society where the 1% get most profit while the 99% have to obey.
We should use a different kind of actions.
We are not an army that is centrally controlled and guided, we are individuals who want a better society (without a leading 1%). We should become independent fighters as in a guerrilla. Small groups hitting then here and then there are difficult to trace. They only carry out actions against the 1% and their servants and not against other 99% who are under pressure in society.

There are many actions but the results are meagre. Activists want better decisions but the people who decide are hardly influenced. The actions leave decision-takers virtually untouched.

Big demonstrations do not force leaders to listen to us. These actions soemtimes end in a fight with the police in which only the 99% are hurt (the police are also 99%). Leaders listen also not to smaller actions in which reasonable arguments or the interests of the 99% are brought forward.

For a better society we should not copy organisations and ideas of the present society. The 99% should fight in decentralised Autonomous Clubs carrying out many small actions in the private living sphere of the 1% and their political, industrial, military, financial etc. servants.

In my experience this kind of actions gives activists much more pleasure than the traditional actions and forces leaders to listen better to what the 99% want. It gives already some idea of a new society without a 1% in which the 99% have power because they can veto any decision that damages the interests and well-being of the 99%.
Only direct actions against the 1% and their servants promise change.

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.
