Occupy the 1%!

  28. The road to the future is more important than the future

-- June 27 2012 --

The road to the future is more important than the future. 

The target is the 1% and the goal a better future without selfish greedy rich. The Movement has no immediate demands but is in for the long trip to a new future in which a new kind of powerful citizens will come into existence. It is our prime task in to start on the road towards this new future.

In this future the 1% has ceased to exist and the 99% have learned to be active and involved in subjects that interest them. But discussions about new systems are utopian. It is preposterous to prescribe now how a new society looks like, that is the responsibility of the people who live then.
All systems, be it communist, anarchist, fascist or whatever, try to restrict the freedom of the 99%.
Living autonomous people who have individual power must come first and not dead systems.

The road to the future is the most important event. By putting pressure on the 1% the 99% start to change in self-conscious citizens and become a new kind of people with a new kind of power that prevent that ever again selfish 1% rule the world.
How farther humanity proceeds on this road the better The People see how a New Humane society looks like.
Now we have hardly any idea of a future where all people have the same status. To move is human but moving is now restricted by the greed and the domination of the 1%. And by outlived action methods that were not successful in the past.   

The present activities should promote the power of common people and the importance of individual citizens. In these actions the 99% put direct pressure on people they have assigned as decision-takers. The 99% must force these people to take decisions in the interest of all people and not anymore in favour of a few already privileged people.  Demonstrations and other mass actions only support the autonomous actions in the War of the Flea. In the New Humane Society The People have developed an individual power. Then the 99% do not govern but only control, veto or punish if assigned people take wrong decisions.  

Movements differ from political organisations that slowly try to improve the present society without transgressing the boundaries set by the 1%. Political organisations restrict the creativity of the 99% because they have fixed short-term goals. They cannot break through the walls that keep us prisoner. We must break through these walls and start moving on the road to a different future. Only Movements have the power to reach the grassy meadows outside the walls.  

Do not worry too much how the new future will look like. The road to the future is more important and more interesting than philosophies about the future. With a new kind of actions that pressure the 1% we take the first step on this road and reach a future in which not money rules the world but the well-being of all people who have the same status.
