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.

105. The contradiction between leftists and rightists cannot be solved in the present society that is dominated by inequality.

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 … Continue reading

104. The actions against the G20 in Hamburg were not very positive. Wars continue, inequality increases and wide-spread poverty is not wiped out.

Hundreds of thousands of common citizens participated in Germany in actions against the G20. They were enthusiastic because so many people had become active. But there were hardly any positive results. And many activists but also many police-officers, all belonging … Continue reading

103. Deep State, untouchable and very powerful people. Why are there no actions of the 99% against these people?

In the public but also in the private sector there are quite a few people with (very) high incomes who prepare decisions. They remain on top for tens of years. They are hardly ever sacked and common citizens have no … Continue reading

102. Why should we fight with the police or with fascists, it changes nothing. We should attack the 1%.

Actions should have success. When there are no successes, many activists stop being active and action groups disappear. During my sixty years of experience in the action world many groups only existed a few years. The police control better and … Continue reading

101. A long series of small actions break down the power of the mighty 1% that is based on the possession of too much money.

There are a few very powerful people in our world. They are fairly unknown and take their decisions in silence. They have much too much money and talk nearly only with people who also have too much money. They are … Continue reading

100. Actions are wrong, success too small and only the 99% are damaged.

We need a different kind of actions. Actions are never based on the deep cause of most misery.  The powerful 1% are never attacked. In the last 70 years the influence of the 99% on decisions taken by the top … Continue reading

99. Why are there no actions against the Deep State, the high-placed people who prepare any decision?

I do not like Trump but I did also not like Obama. Both support the many wars in Third World countries, both are sending away millions of so-called illegal citizens, both take decisions that only increase the richness at the … Continue reading

98. Why all these fights with fascists. Do you really think that changes anything? Attack the 1%!

Trump became president and suddenly fascists became much more active. I do not directly disagree with fights between fascists and anti-fascists but it does not help anything. It are fights between two parts of the 99% and people who cause … Continue reading

97. Actions are not very successful. They often damage the 99%. People over 30 years hardly take part in actions.

We need a new kind of actions. Successes are rare, damage to the 99% too big, disturbing the life of the 1% hardly present. What is the result of actions against Trump? Does anyone think that Trump stops being president … Continue reading

96. Is there much opposition against Trump? Not much more as against Obama. All presidents promote in first place the interests of the 1%.

Obama and now Trump. Wars, greed (of the 1%), racism and many more awful things continued under Obama and will continue under Trump. A big difference is that Obama is a servant of the 1% while Trump is a 1% … Continue reading
