All people should have the possibility to exercise power when needed but that cannot be achieved in the existing society. The power of the 99% is now controlled by the 1%. Sometimes the 99% take part in mass actions as demonstrations but the dominant organisers of these actions only demand some improvement in the life of 99%. They do not attack the difference in power and money between the 1% (and their servants) and the 99% who are at the bottom of the money and power pyramid.
Only the 1% and their servants participate in making decisions. To get an own independent power the 99% need leaderless Autonomous Clubs by attacking the now nearly unassailable 1% Then the 99% get an own power to take away the surplus of power and money from the 1%.
The 99% should only be active as individuals who fight a War of the Flea. Just as fleas the 99% are small. When one flea pricks a human we are not disturbed very much but when a thousand fleas prick the same human, the human will go away, hide and loses his grip on the world he dominated. Many small attacks on the 1% give the 99% the power that cares for it that the 1% lose their power and money. During these small independent attacks the attackers do not take any orders from above. When many 99% use many small actions the result is impressive.
A continuous stream of many small actions has result, a few big actions as demonstrations do not achieve much. Demonstrations sometimes end in fights with the police (also part of the 99%) but the 1% are not personally influenced in their private life and remain undisturbed, rich and powerful on top of society. Big actions do not have any influence on them.
The slogan “Spending 200.000 euro in one year should be the limit” says that nobody may spend more than 200.000 euro in one year. All expensive items that only can be used and bought by the rich part of society (the 1%) may be attacked by the 99%. It undermines one of the reasons why the 1% want to have so much money – to distinguish themselves from common people by possessing articles, services and products common people never can buy or use. Actions following this slogan will in the end result in the idea that nobody wants to become rich and powerful and wants to rule over the 99%.
When the 1% are not attacked, the 99% remain down under and dependent on what the 1% order. A new society only becomes real when the 99% have an independent power and when the greedy 1% who have too much money and power disappear because of actions by the 99%.
We should start to attack the 1%.
