During past movements too many 99% were imprisoned, hurt and even killed while the people who took disputed decisions were not directly influenced by any pressure. The 1% have even never been the target of any movement. When the demands of the 99% are not fulfilled movements soon die away. A central point in all movements should be that the 99% must hardly be hurt by actions and that all pressure is only directed on decision-takers.
Movements mostly only act against other 99% as the police who are paid by decision-takers to control revolting people. When you do not agree with what these 99% do do not act against them but against higher placed leaders. Concentrate on the 1% and their servants who are the basic cause of all misery.
In our society the 99% do not have much to say. Even elected “representatives” of the 99% mostly listen to higher placed people and obey their orders. Nothing is done against the growing inequality neither against the lack of influence on how the 1% favour themselves. We do not even speak about the many wars in which only the 99% are killed while the 1% profit from arms sales. And also not about the billion people who are not sure to live the next day because of lack of money while the 1% are born with a lot of money that only increases in their life.
Some actions of the 99% help the 99% a little bit (till the next crisis) but the cause of their subordinate worse position is hardly attacked. Even leaders of help-organisations hardly know that common people exist. The helping leaders help in the first place themselves. They have high incomes and all kind of allowances that permit them to live like kings. It is only a small example of how money from the 99% is channelled upwards towards leaders who rule the 99%.
When we want change we should pressure people who make it possible that money from the 99% goes upwards towards the 1%. I do not see any pressure on the 1% and their servants who continue a system in which the top has affluent money and power while the masses, the 99%, have hardly anything to say about the products they make. A Movement that want change should start to pressure the 1% and stop fighting other 99% with different ideas. Then the society in which the 1% rule at last starts to disintegrate.
