81. Why should the Movement attack the 1%?

The 1% is the top of the world, they have money and power. They decide and interfere in higher circles. Decisions are often taken in backrooms and the 99% do not hear much about what happens there. The super-rich 1% have servants at the top of the industrial, medical, political, military, financial and many other worlds. The 99% can only dream of the high incomes of these leaders. The servants are obedient because the very rich top can interfere in their decisions and also in their incomes. Money is the prime reason of all decisions.
The people at the top of society are hardly pressured by the 99% who decide without any influence of common people. While sometimes servants are removed from high positions, the real top, the 1% cannot be removed, they have the money that secure them a place at the top.

The Rockefellers, the Duponts, the Rothschilds and many more families mostly reign via channels that are closed to any influence of the 99%. That should change, the 99% should get influence and the money factor should be excluded from any influence on the life of people who do not have any money. The rising incomes and possessions of the 1% and their servants prove that now decisions are taken for their profit while the 99% are not allowed to say anything about the rising stream of money to the top of society.

In a world without a 1% all people have the same status. The 99% can interfere in any decision. Maybe the 99% have some influence on small decisions but not on for example the growing use of planes that deteriorate our air. Or about the transfer of factories to other countries that results in a loss of jobs for the 99%. The 1% only think of methods how to get still more money, what happens to the 99% is unimportant.

Because their power is based on money nobody can object to actions that prevent that the 1% can use their surplus money, can have an extravagant life and get still more. More money to the top means less money to the 99%.

Because past actions damaged in the first place the 99% we must start to use only actions that pressure the 1%. When that happens the 99% will be content. The world will change and the 99% can participate when they want (and against whom they want). The welfare will be divided under all people and not in the first place under those people who have already too much.

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.
