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. 13. What “we” may undertake is important, not what “they” do.

Most political articles are concerned with what they, the leaders of society, do. They react on what the top decides. That should change, the top should react on what we do and we should pressure the people at the top … Continue reading

Mov. 12. Happy New Year to all 99%!

I wish that in 2019 many common citizens become active in the struggle to take the money and power away from the 1%. Only without a 1% the 99% become equal people who have influence on any decision that is … Continue reading

Mov.10 . Many small actions have more success than a few big actions. And they give activists much more pleasure.

We should irritate top-people who take wrong decisions. After many small irritations they will react. Go with a few friends to an expensive restaurant where the target-person is eating, go to his table, taste one or two things from his … Continue reading

Mov. 9. A few people who rule and use the system dominate the 99%. But I see no attacks on the greedy 1%.

Capitalism is wrong. But also in communism, socialism and in all other systems a few powerful and very rich people rule. They use the system primarily for their own welfare, the 99% remain secondary people. Some of them have a … Continue reading

Mov8. Small actions are necessary. Such actions only disturb the expensive life of the 1% and do not hurt the 99%.

The Golden Rule for Actions states that actions should increase pressure on the 1%. Therefore we need many small hardly punishable actions that intrude in the private life of top-people. Past and present actions mostly do not agree with the … Continue reading

Mov7. The 99% are controlled by the 1% who order many actions in the private life of the 99%. Why do the 99% not enter the private life of the 1%?

The private life of the 1% is never disturbed by actions. The 99% who oppose the selfish rule of top-people are often forced to obey what top-people have decided because of actions in their private life. The killings of anti-corruption … Continue reading

Mov.6. Actions of moving people should only disturb the life of the 1% and never damage the 99%.

When you are wounded you cannot move. Movement actions should only be directed against people on top of society who take wrong decisions. Active people and all 99% should remain undisturbed. But many actions result only in conflicts with the … Continue reading

Mov. 5. Movements are leaderless. Moving mass people decide themselves what to do. They do not obey a few high-placed leaders.

Movements are formed by free people. Moving people move in any direction. They may do anything they want. Individuals only carry out ideas and activities that fit in their private living situation. They use simple and effective actions. In the … Continue reading

Mov 4. Only many small hardly punishable actions against the 1% give the 99% an independent power to changes the world.

The 1% rule already too many centuries. The 99% never developed an own power to stop the money grabbing egoistic fools who rule the life of the masses. We need a different kind of actions that only pressure the 1%.

Mov 3. The Movement against the 1% wants a more equal society without a 1%. Some ideas about a new future can be used in actions.

The present society is strictly organised. What we need for our daily use is produced by secondary 99%. Other secondary 99% apply and enforce the rules all 99% have to obey. The 1% on top can hardly be approached by … Continue reading
