I thought this was brilliant. People don't expect the guy to be so intellectual.

I have a big man crush on Russell Brand. He speaks volumes of truth and I think he's right, we're nearing a breaking point in our society where people will finally realize this just isnt working anymore overall. 

Revolution is a strong word to use because people think violence, but Im not so sure a modern day American Revolution would be violent. Maybe some pockets of violence, but people need to realize the power they have and change things accordingly.

This picture struck me a few weeks ago, I think its powerful imagery:

Impressed.

Also, impressed that he used to plow Katy Perry. Strikes me as the type of fellow that would go anal on her too. Phone Post 3.0

Didn't see this thread when I posted mine...

That said, Brand is a fucking moron. While he makes some decent observations... Observations anyone paying attention could just as easily make. When he gets to the point of calling for a "socialist revolution and a massive redistribution of wealth" but has absolutely no idea about what comes next, it just shows how intellectually immature he is. This is why actors should keep their mouths shut about politics.

He has a point. The world would be better off if all socialists followed his lead and refrained from voting.

It worked great in Russia. They even had a cute little name for one of their campaigns of freedom from the rich: "Red Terror".

 

It was pretty cool, they only had to kill like 2 million people.

 

 

Someone on the other thread said he shouls contemplate it while visiting mass graves.

I agree.

But only after he reads a fucking history book.

 

How many Che shirts you got Russ?

 

Fucking idiot.

I like how the interviewer has nothing to say, so he just resorts to a dismissive smirk in the sign off.

Wouldn't it be cool and edgy if the US had a Bolshevik like party to launch a revolution?

 

Yeah it would be real cool until they took your shit and killed your family.

Russel brand is just ranting.

There are countries where there is very good social mobility ( norway, canada, australia, finland).

Most of the complaints are from countries where social mobility is just not great. (USA/GB)

It's really a question of ego at a certain point, some countries need to stop thinking that there is a correlation of being a big player and greatness, and actually see why the little guys are overall doing better on average.

And GB is much more heavily taxed than the US, so it is obviously not simply a question of wealth redistribution.

Who does he tear apart exactly? He looked whacked off his mind, and repeated the same shit over and over again with no reasonable answer to any of the questions.

"oh theres a paradigm between rich and poor" etc. Says the millionaire who blows his money all over the place.

The guy is a fuckface of the highest order. Phone Post
