The 1% dominate our society. The richest people have most power and control most decisions. They are hardly ever attacked, leftists as well as rightists only attack people who belong to the 99%. The contradiction between left and right prevents that all attention (and all actions) is directed at the primary enemy, the 1%.
In my more than sixty years of political activity I have talked to many people and one of my conclusions is that leftists are not as leftist as they think they are while rightists are not as rightist as they think they are. Leftists have on many subjects rightist ideas and rightist on other subjects leftist ideas. The differences inside the 99% between left and right continue to exist when the world is dominated by the 1%. But I see no actions by leftists that could be liked by rightists, nor actions by rightists that should be liked by leftists. They only are active in the world of the 99%. The 1% should become our prime target instead of fighting people who are also 99%. The 99% are hurt enough by decisions of the 1%.
We are small people but we can carry out many small actions against the 1% that result in a long series of small victories. Many people will like that, leftist as well as rightists. We should disturb the privileged life of the richest and most powerful people. Actions should always obey the Golden Rule for Actions, damage to the 99% should be minimal and pressure on the 1% ever increasing.
I never took part in actions against rightist people. My goal has always been a different kind of world in which all common people have influence on any decision. In the past we called these people capitalists, in the present the term 1% is used. These people are protected by the servants of the 1% including the Deep State. My sympathy for leftist or rightist organisations that do not pressure the 1% has disappeared. Why should I be sympathetic for organisations that do nothing against the continuing great misery for many world citizens. A billion of them still have no electricity and hardly enough money to survive the next day. Poverty and inequality continue to exist. There is inadequate housing, insufficient medical care, low education and many other things that should be available for all people and not only for the few privileged ones. Common citizens are a kind of slaves of the 1% on top of the world.
There are many differences between common people but hardly anyone oppose the devastating wars of the 1% that increase their own power and money. Many millions of 99% are still slaughtered and the 1% are never damaged. But the 99% still do not attack these disagreeable 1%. Such attacks make differences between left and right unimportant. Now the 99% fight each other and the world of the 99% is divided and not strong enough to remove the 1% from power.
Why should I prefer left over right or right over left when nobody attacks the 1%? We need a world without a 1% to solve differences between common citizens. And we do not get a better world while we only fight other people who belong to the 99%. The 1% promote wars that favour their own rising wealth while the fighting 99% kill each other. Even in terrorist attacks in the rich Western countries victims are also only the 99%. The 1% continue to live undisturbed in their exclusive and privileged first world.
