Most political activities hurt the 99% while people with power are hardly damaged. I do not agree with this kind of activities.
In all countries the 99% are controlled. The right to demonstrate is restricted by people against whom will be demonstrated. The right to assemble, to organise a meeting, to have an own opinion etc. are often attacked, controlled or even suspended. This is never done when people with power assemble, meet or advance different opinions.
The word terrorism is introduced to get better means to control or prohibit activities of the 99%. Environmental activists are being called ecoterrorists. Actions to promote the civil rights of common citizens are in Australia or Canada sometimes called spying activities that are dangerous for the state, terms that are very close to the word terrorist.
In all wars the powerless 99% are treated as criminals, though actions against common criminals are not as hard as against political activists. The use of untouchable planes to kill people who want something different without any interference of a judicature should be called a terrorist action. It is for the 99% extremely difficult to get a better society for themselves. When they become active they fall in the gap between the 1% who order their troops to kill 99% and people or rebellious fractions who also kill 99% people. Again and again the 99% are restricted in their freedom to get more power. The greatest danger for them are the 1% and their servants who want to extend their extravagant life and incomes.
Actions hurt in most cases only the 99%. Maybe the 1% and their servants are slightly criticised but actions that undermine their power do not exist. In this way we continue to live in a world in which there are two kind of people, the 1% and their servants and the 99%. People who want another kind of society hardly have any ideas how to undermine the power of the most powerful people, the 1%, who in the first place work to improve their own existence.
Actions that only hurt the 99% give not much change and the 99% remain dependent of the power and the surplus money of the 1%.
We should start actions against the 1%.
