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 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

Mov. 2. For real change we need movements, especially the Movement against the 1%, the greedy people at the top of the world.

Imagine that thousands of unknown people gather in the centres of towns to discuss with other unknown 99% what they could do to break the dominating power (and money) of the 1%.

Mov 1. The Movement against the 1%

After the second world war in many new wars many more humans who belong to the 99% have been killed and are still being killed. The 1% remain undisturbed and continue to profit. Inequality continues to rise.

114. Political actions have hardly success, they only damage the 99% and do not pressure the 1%.

For more than sixty years I have experienced, participated in and organised quite a few popular street actions. People became active after an outcry over what leading people were doing. But actions were unsuccessful and only copied former actions that … Continue reading

113. In the USA there are many actions against the alt-right, right-wing people but none against their leaders.

Fights with rightist people have hardly any positive results. Such fights care for it that activists have less time to attack the prime target, the 1%, who dominate our life by their great power based on their great surplus of … Continue reading

112. Why are the 1% never attacked? The world is ruled by money and the super-rich rule undisturbed.

The world only changes when the power of the few powerful people on top of the world is undermined. Therefore we need the “Movement against the 1%” that inspires common citizens to carry out many thousands of small actions that … Continue reading

111. Most political actions have hardly any success. We need big action targets and thus a new kind of actions.

Some actions have success because they have only small demands. When demands are bigger as stopping new pipelines, preventing that too many people are in prison, that too many blacks are getting long sentences, that the war in Afghanistan is … Continue reading

Happy New Year for all people who want a more humane world without a 1%.

I doubt that last year was as happy as wished for common citizens. In 2017 the five hundred richest people increased their wealth each day by two and a half billion euro disregarding that still a billion common people have … Continue reading

110. We should only attack the 1%, the super-rich decision-takers who dominate society. All past political actions only damaged people who belong to the 99%.

All decisions, from the far past up till the present, are taken by powerful (and very rich) decision-takers. The 99% have hardly any influence. The consequences of these decisions can be very bad but only hurt the 99%. It is … Continue reading

109. We are ruled by authoritarian and even dictatorial leaders. The 99% have ridiculous small influence on any decision.

To get more influence the 99% should directly pressure decision-takers.
