They have billions, we are millions, the slogan of a recent strike in France. The 1% have billions they can invest and pay their workers but use it mostly to increase their own comfort and wealth. The 99% are millions, in the whole world even billions, but strikes do not help them much. Continue reading

During sixty years I took part, saw and read about thousands of actions.
Not many people over thirty are still activist because of two points:
In the first place actions did not have much success.
In the second place nearly always only the 99% was damaged.
That must change. Continue reading

I hope actions will change from attacking buildings and police from attacking the people who give the orders to control us. The 1% should be attacked!
Download freely my latest book “How to make Revolution. Developing the Fourth People’s Power”, http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis/Revolution.pdf about pressuring the 1% to get a better world without a 1%.
Or read my articles on Facebook Group ”Occupy the 1%”.
A few thousand billionaires rule over nearly all money streams in the world, especially over the stream of money from the 99% to the 1%. The idea that money rules is not vague. Everything is judged on the money factor, the life of common people is not important in decisions. Continue reading

The 99% need one world without a 1%.
There is a first, richest world for the 1% and a second world for the 99%. The two worlds hardly have contact with each other. The 1% give their orders to their servants who translate these orders towards the 99%. At the same time money streams from the second to the first world. Continue reading

During the French Revolution the 99% tried to change the world ruled by more or less dictatorial people who had too much money and power. But 200 years later, the present 1% are much richer and more powerful than the elite before the French Revolution.
In most actions only the 99% were damaged and sometimes even died and the 1% became more powerful and wealthy. The actions of the 99% in the last 200 years were not efficient. We are still secondary people in a world dominated by a greedy, cruel, very powerful and very rich 1%. Continue reading

All actions and fights of the 99% take place in the world where the 99% live. All damages as arrests, imprisonments, wounds and even deaths only hurt the 99%. The greedy 1% continue to live undisturbed and extravagantly in their first world.
That should change! We should get one world for all people by starting to pressure the 1% (and their servants). Continue reading

The war in Syria has cost already 500.000 deaths, all belonging to the 99%. The war continues also because there are no actions against the producers or the financial experts who make more and more weapons. They are the cause that many 99% are killed by guns. Weapons, factories and banks are dead entities, they cannot be guilty. The users, producers and financial experts are guilty. The 1% earn a lot from selling weapons. They live extravagantly on the profits of weapons that only kill common citizens. The few people who profit from this killing industry have never been attacked. Continue reading
All people should have the possibility to exercise power when needed but that cannot be achieved in the existing society. The power of the 99% is now controlled by the 1%. Sometimes the 99% take part in mass actions as demonstrations but the dominant organisers of these actions only demand some improvement in the life of 99%. They do not attack the difference in power and money between the 1% (and their servants) and the 99% who are at the bottom of the money and power pyramid. Continue reading

In democracies as well as in dictatorships the top decides and the 99% have to obey. New systems sometimes promise a glorious future but the result is always a new leading group on top of society, a new 1% with a much better life than the 99%. For real change we should attack directly the 1% and their political, industrial and financial servants. Continue reading
