There are a few very powerful people in our world. They are fairly unknown and take their decisions in silence. They have much too much money and talk nearly only with people who also have too much money. They are the 1% who care for it that decisions in first place increase the stream of money to their pockets. The 1% is the most important target for the 99% when they want a more humane world in which all people can influence any decision. Such attacks never occurred. Why should we not change the direction of our activities. There is still too much misery. It only changes when the greedy and selfish 1% cease to exist.
We have to change our actions when we want to attack successfully this silent group of people. Past actions were not very successful and damaged in first place activists. They are in contradiction to the Golden Rule for Actions that damage to the 99% must be minimal and pressure on the 1% ever increasing. We need different, new and more modern actions. You may have been active on the first of May, an old action by which hardly anything is accomplished. At the most there was a fight with the police in which only people were hurt who are part of the 99%. For real change we have to pressure the 1%. To avoid that we are damaged we should only carry out actions where there is no police. We are not against the police, we are in first place opposed to people who use common police-officers. The highest are the 1% who still increase the stream of money from our kind of people to top-people like the 1%.
One action, even an action in which a million people are demonstrating, does not change anything. The 1% are hardly pressured and only the 99% maybe hurt. We are small people but there are more than seven billion like us. We should start a long series of small actions against the big people at the top of society. Creatively we can disturb their life, their exclusive world in which the 99% may only enter as a servant. This kind of actions that disturb the rich world of the 1% shall not influence the life of the 99% as most past actions do.
In rich places the 99% are hardly present. It are expensive restaurants, shops, private clubs, holiday places, closed meetings, auctions of expensive articles, cars that cost more than a hundred thousand euro, ridiculous expensive houses, etcetera. Attacks can take place by small groups of activists but also by modern means of communication as telephone and internet. You must be creative but you also have a lot of pleasure if you succeed to disturb the telephone connections of a prominent person. Disturbing his dinner in an expensive restaurant will also be a pleasant action. The 99% will hardly be damaged and the life of the 1% continues to be disturbed when the long series of small actions continues to grow. Apply a new kind of actions also with the technical means that start to dominate everyone’s life.
A long series of small actions, hardly punishable for the 99%, pressure the 1% so much that the world starts to change. It is a first step on the road towards a more humane world.
