Mov. 32. The 99% should target wrong decision-takers and not concentrate on wrong decisions.

People who take important decisions belong to the 1%. When they take wrong decisions they are not personally punished but sometimes their organisation pays a fine. The biggest Dutch Bank, the ING-bank, got a fine of about a billion euro because the bank whitewashed black money from illegal origin. ING-leaders had taken important wrong decisions but only the ING-organisation was fined and the high-placed (and high-paid) wrong decision-takers could continue to take other wrong decisions. When lower-placed people whitewash criminal money they are arrested and imprisoned.

The 1% rule about a lot of money but when they make criminal mistakes they are hardly ever imprisoned. People who do not belong to the 1% are often arrested and imprisoned when they use criminal methods to earn money.
The 99% only protest against wrong decisions but hardly ever attack wrong decision-takers. Therefore actions are mostly without any success, wrong decision-takers continue to take wrong decisions that in first place benefit the 1%. We need actions that do not target wrong decisions but wrong decision-takers. We should hinder them so long till they leave their high and lucrative posts where they take selfish decisions. For a better world we should start to end the rule of the very privileged and extravagant living 1%.

To take the money and the power away from the 1% the target of actions of the 99% should not to change wrong decisions but to pressure and remove wrong decision-takers. Society will not change when the 1% are permitted to continue to take decisions that are often negative for common citizens and beneficial for top-people society. Then the 99% remain down under in the pyramidal society in which the 1% rules. The 99% allow now that the same wrong decision-takers are undisturbed and can continue to take wrong and selfish decisions.

Top-people are very selfish. In the last fifty years the incomes of top-CEO’s increased from about twenty times the wages of workers till now to about three hundred and fifty times the wages of the average worker. Obviously actions of the 99% have not been very successful. We should. directly attack selfish top-people who take egoistic decisions.

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.
