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 http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis. 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.

Mov. 34. Inequality continues to grow, only the rich can take important decisions that primarily benefit themselves.

Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are the first two people who possess more than 100 billion dollar. At the same time the number of people who do not know if they have the next day enough money to buy the … Continue reading

Mov. 33. Mass actions have hardly any success, we should use many small actions to undermine wrong decision-takers.

I participated in quite a few mass actions and also in many small activities. Mass actions had always very meagre positive results. Wrong decisions were hardly changed and wrong decision-takers remained on their high posts. It shows that top-people hardly … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Mov. 31. Many small actions of many small and independent Autonomous Clubs curtail the power of the 1%.

We need small Autonomous Clubs. All past actions were wrong on at least two points. Only activists were damaged and action results were hardly ever positive. That happens with mass actions in which the 99% only ask to change wrong … Continue reading

Mov. 30. Political actions should change, they are mostly without much success.

Most actions have hardly any positive result. Sometimes decisions taken by people who do not know anything about the 99% are somewhat changed. But when these decisions are put in practice improvements often just disappear. Decision-takers are selfish people who … Continue reading

Mov. 29. With actions we want to change society. But why are the 1% never the target of any action?

The world is ruled by the 1%, by a few extremely rich people supported by well-paid and high-placed mercenaries. They control the 99% who have to follow their orders. All past efforts to get another society in which the 99% … Continue reading

Mov. 28. Reactions of high-placed people who were disturbed by a series of small actions.

My action experience shows that a long series of small disturbances have more influence on decisions of top-people than traditional mass actions. By carrying out small actions activists are hardly ever damaged while clashes with the police after big demonstrations … Continue reading

Mov. 27. Penetrating in the private living situation of the 1% will change the world.

Political actions mostly want to change wrong decisions. There is hardly any pressure on wrong decision-takers. Only sometimes the lowest decision-takers, the politicians, are somewhat pressured. But the results are not very positive. The highest decision-takers, the 1%, continue to … Continue reading

Mov. 26. Mass actions have hardly any positive results. Wrong decisions do not change, wrong decision-takers remain on top.

Mass actions are inspiring but only the 99% are damaged. People on top of society who take wrong and selfish decisions are not directly pressured. That should change. We should start to use many small and hardly punishable actions that … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading
