38. Revolution of Evolution
-- November 2 2012 --
Revolution or evolution?
Only revolution can bring real change, evolution merely heals some of the wounds caused by the present organisation of society.
12 million kids died In 1990
before they were five years old. In 2010 still 7.5 million kids died.
The UN Millennium goals aim to reduce this number in 2015 to 4 million
but that will not be achieved – also thanks to the crisis. Without help
300 million kids should have died in this 25 years. The UN saved 100
million kids, but still 200 million kids died. And the dying continues
after 2015. The present society based on greed of the privileged cannot
solve the problem of the unnecessary death of hundreds of millions kids.
Jean-Paul Marat said already about the use of violence by
The People is legitimate, it remains always far inferior to the sum of
all injustices by the despots over the centuries”.
The any dying 99% are unacceptable. It is among
other things caused by the believe that evolution will improve the
world. But not for the hundreds of millions of dying kids, not for the
billions that live in misery.
revolutionary change is a sudden change.
Powerful forces accumulate and unexpectedly something happens nobody
could foresee. The Fall of the Berlin Wall, the Financial Crisis or the
Russian revolution are examples. Humans can cause a revolution by
increasing pressure on society. Not by demanding small improvements but
by undermining the forces that keep this wretched society together for
their own benefit. The 1% decide first in favour of the own well-being.
At the bottom billions live like animals, each day looking for food and
shelter to survive. When the extravagant life of the top is not
disturbed society will proceed on the same way as before and millions of
kids will continue to die each year unnecessary before they are five
world problems cannot be solved in a society were money is the prime
factor in decisions.
A paradigm shift is needed that replaces the pivotal role of money by
the idea that all people have the same status. When we achieve that
change, a new 1% will never rise up again. Seemingly insoluble problems
will be solved. Thomas S. Kuhn said in his book “The Structure of
“During revolutions scientists see new and
different things when looking with familiar instruments at places they
looked before”. René Thom described the
same jump in the development of humanity in his mathematical Catastrophe
Theory. Revolutions bring unexpected solutions to seemingly insolvable
problems. We have the task to make revolution and new solutions
The power pyramid can be
destroyed by undermining the power of the 1%.
the damage to the 99% must me minimised and the pressure on the 1%
maximised. The first part of this idea
says that we see each other as having the same status, the second that
there is a group that is different that has to be called to order.
We can increase the pressure by Creatively Disturbing the life-style of the 1%. We cannot afford to restrict ourselves to actions that have been proven not to contribute to a real change. Humanity cannot permit itself to get change by small steps. It is too costly. Revolutionary change is necessary to destroy the separated, extravagant and privileged world of the 1%. I have already described a multitude of small revolutionary guerrilla-like actions in a War of the Flea against the weak points of the rulers in other articles, e.g. http://downwithelite.wordpress.com/2012/07/06/the-war-of-the-flea-attack-the-weak-points/
