Political actions are directed at buildings where decisions seem to be taken and seldom against the politicians. Their decisions are controlled by the 1%. When the money stream to the 1% is endangered, the 1% give the orders without being attacked.
The huge amount of money at the top of our world is hardly influenced by politicians and certainly not by activists. It is a kind of secret world, controlled by the 1%. The amount of tax money paid by the 1% is astonishing small, they live in another world where the 99% do not carry out actions. The 1% can move their factories and banks to other countries and send their money to the Bahama’s or other tax-friendly countries. They increase their income without any control by people who do not belong to the 1%.
Actions (and it does not matter if they are rightist or leftist) are still concentrated in the centres of towns where sometimes a politician maybe present. But the people in the backrooms, the 1%, are never touched by such actions.
In the cases of Iraq, Libya and Syria, the 1% ordered that wars had to be started because the stream of money to the pockets of the 1% was threatened. Only people who belong to the 99% are killed and wounded by these wars. And the European actions of IS hurt also only the 99% and not the warmongering 1%.
The millions of refugees that come to Europe because of these 1%-wars only disturb the 99%. It causes fights between leftists and rightists, all belonging to the 99%, so they have no time to attack the 1%. the 1% live in another part of the country and refugees do not disturb their life.
To get a better world we should start to attack the greatest forces in the country, the super-rich 1%, on which common citizens have no influence at all. When they are not removed from power, any action that even only slightly influences the money stream towards the wallets of the 1% will fail.
The leading idea in all actions should become:
Actions should disturb the privileged life of the 1% and not hurt fellow-99%.
