We aren't going to attack the 1%, we are attacking an environment that allows a 1% to exist.

1. For profit banks / For profit investments -- (which disregard ethics)
2. Poor education system
3. News as entertainment
4. An environmentally destructive economy
5. Private ownership of the means of production

We seek a system that puts the society above the individual.
