Mov. 25. The 1% are independent because they have a lot of money. They control if decisions in first place benefit themselves.

Most political actions try to get better decisions and not to remove wrong decision-takers. Action groups only ask the lowest decision-takers (the politicians) to take decisions that are more favourable for the 99%. Top-people who control that decisions are in first place favourable for the 1% are never pressured. At the most a hundred thousand people have so much money that they independently take selfish decisions that are carried out by lower decision-takers. They should become the prime target of any political action.

Lower decision-takers obey the wishes of the top of the 1%. It are the mercenaries of the 1% and get much higher incomes than the 99% who have hardly any influence on what is decided in the top of society.

The lowest decision-takers are elected. They are supported by civil servants who are sometimes a little bit pressured by the 99%. All other top-people are not elected and hardly ever pressured. Therefore the incomes of the 99% hardly increased in the last ten years while top-people got much more. Electing representatives is obviously not the right way to get decisions that favour the interests of the 99%.

Above elected politicians are high-placed and well-paid civil servants of state organisations and the leaders of the army and the police who give the orders to use violence against political activists. They actively control the 99% who don’t agree with their secondary position. Even when common citizens are killed in actions – as during the Yellow Vests demonstrations – these leaders are never removed from their lucrative top-positions or pressured by actions of the 99%.

Even more untouchable are the very high paid top-directors of banks and gigantic concerns who take in first place decisions that increase the wealth of the 1% who own these concerns. The real 1% are people who have more than about a hundred million euro who take independently selfish decisions. Political actions are at the most a kind of discussions between the 99% and lower decision-takers, the top of the 1% remains always outside these conflicts. They are never pressured.

When we want a society without a 1% political actions should not ask a better kind of decisions but remove the few egoistic top-people who order to control the secondary life of the 99%. And actions should never damage the 99% but only increase pressure on the 1%.

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 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.
