i think russell brand rocks, he has potential to be the face of a revolution. not a violent crazy kind but just helping to open people's eyes...average americans love celebrities!<quoted text>
What's funny is that Brand has ALWAYS done this to his interviewers. I watched him blow the MSNBC set up on Morning Joe. Smart people who come from poverty are VERY DANGEROUS to the establishment. Smart people who come from poverty and gain wealth and power DESTROY the establishment.
He's wrong about voting though, and I think he misidentifies the source of change. I also think he underestimates the danger conservatives pose to society today, and the importance of wrestling what little power they have remaining away. To do anything else risks losing all of the gains liberals have made for the environment, the poor, civil rights, women and minorities.
and he condemns the two party system. he doesnt follow the 2 party paradigm. He's explaining all of that is just an illusion constructed to keep people arguing among themselves. It's keeping people from addressing real issues (poverty,hunger,wars,environme nt, etc) and confronting who is behind it all.
he doesn't mention liberals or conservatives
