I write only for people who want to get a society in which all people are considered to be equal. After all past revolutions soon a new 1% started to rise. Again common people became secondary. They should again strive for a society without a 1% who base their power on money.
Common people fought in many ways to get a better society. But always a new and exclusive group of people rose to power. Then the struggle had to start again. The 99% often got a better life but they remained subordinate. Their rights did not count when the 1% wanted something. Inequality is still rising and can only disappear when the 1% is attacked. That hardly occurred in the past.
Past action methods failed. We still live in a world in which the 1% and their servants decide (in the first place for their own benefit). The 99% have not much to say. We need a different kind of actions. We need to activate the 99% in direct actions against the 1% and the products only they can use. Differences inside the 99% should be solved later. Fighting between different parts of the 99% does not damage the 1% who can easily hold their money and power. Such fighting will never result in a better society without a dictatorial 1%.
There are many actions to improve the climate but the interests of the 1% are never attacked. They have huge incomes and use most products that make the climate worse. It does not interest the 1% that the places where the 99% live will be flooded when the ice on the poles is melting. The 1% live mostly in places where it is still nice to breath. The 1% only want to earn more money and there is no action to stop production of articles that only can be used by the 1% and their servants.
We could start actions against climate unfriendly products that only can be bought and used by people who can spend more than 200.000 euro in one year. Then we only put pressure on the 1% and their servants and the 99% will not be damaged as happens in most actions.
Let’s start actions against the 1% and care for it that only these dictatorial people are damaged. We are damaged enough by what the top of society is doing. That must stop.
A world without a 1% is a world in which all people have the same status and have rights that cannot be taken away for the benefit of the small group at the top.
