In the last five centuries Western troops killed each other in many wars. At the same time they invaded the rest of the world killing and enslaving hundreds of millions. People became dependent and of the West. All victims were people from the 99%, the leading 1% were never attacked, imprisoned or killed.
After two Western World Wars the killing continued in the rest of the world. Troops from the USA and its Western allies invaded at least 50 countries. Troops from Third World countries never invaded any Western country. Countries became “independent” but leaders who did not want to obey the 1% were removed or even killed as for example Lumumba, Saddam Hussein, Khadafy, Mossadeq or Allende.
The leading Western 1% were replaced by a local 1% (also greedy and often dictatorial or fundamentalist) who became part of the Western 1%. Money continued to stream towards the 1%. Still many 99% were killed when they tried to get a better life. But the local 99% hardly attacked the local 1%.
The present terrorist attacks show some change but I do neither agree with the IS or the bombing Western 1%, criminals who only kill the 99%. In all 500 years the 1% was never attacked. All killings and misery were caused by the 1% who were free of any attack by the 99%.
The world continues to obey the 1%. Colonies became neo-colonies and in all fights in the last fifty years the 99% continued to be killed and the 1% continued to grab money. That the 99% get an equal voice compared with the super-rich is still far away. Therefore we should attack the 1%.
In the Vietnamese War a few million Vietnamese 99% were killed and about 50.000 American 99%. But the Vietnamese fighters never carried out actions in Western countries. Attacks in highly developed countries were too difficult. But the world changed. People got more education, got more money and there are many often discriminated immigrants who have intensive ties with their home-countries.
Attacks are being carried out in the West but in the same way as is done by Western armies. Killing and disturbing the 99% and not touching the 1% who causes all misery. And the 1% also continue to kill the 99%, they are not disturbed by actions that are not influencing their own existence.
All actions should be directed at the 1% who are the real offenders. The 99% should not anymore be damaged.
That should become the Golden Rule in Actions.
