Just stumbled on this. doubt there is anything that will be earth shattering News. Maybe at least it will shame the Banker Cockroaches a bit.

Wondering why it's not Free. This is the Trailer.

Just what we all need! An anorexic version of Michael Moore?

True enough... and not likely to change much of anything, but at least he's using his minor celebrity to attempt to effect real change for the better... and on top of that, he's not a total imbecile... like most of 'those types' are.

Attempting to adjust income inequality isn't really a socialist issue... it's a human issue that would benefit all of us... even the grossly wealthy and their progeny... though that's counter intuitive at first; when looked at in the broader, long term view, it makes sense.

Besides, fair is fair (for some of us, anyway).

Who will be funding his latest anti bank rant?
Remember the last one,last year?


Russell Brand film on RBS bankers funded by City investors - including former RBS banker Russell Brand's film about 'financial inequality' is largely funded by high net worth City investors who were able to offset their investment against tax


www.telegraph.co.uk...

Russel Brand,the millionaire sex addict,ex heroin addict,once an ok comedian wants to pretend he is some kind of Che Guevara man of the people,or some messianic figure who will put the system right..

HEHE thats his best ever joke.

What an imbecile.

Maybe if he were saying something new and not regurgitated wannabe socialist bull# while sitting on a pile of cash that came from the people he complains about the most.

Its like selling Che Guevara tshirts.... Oh wait..

I love Russel Brand but this seems like a retelling of "Capitalism: A Love Story". I wonder what angles he used to make it different.

The overhead in making a movie isn't "priceless", though. It has a cost.

This was my initial reaction as well. But I guess he's actually trying to do something, and affect change in a way he sees as positive, so I can't really fault him for that.

So once in a while he wonders out from his posh flat in London,to get filmed doing his latest bank expose.
As the last film he did on the subject was funded by the bankers,he has lost credibility for me.
Maybe he thinks he is doing something good-but his backers have other ideas and agendas,IMO.

They have this guy who looks like the perfect student activist hero,running about making films about how to take down the system through exposing the banks shady shennanigans-but they are paying him...

He is the beeiiach of the bankers.
They are acting as his handlers,maybe without him knowing,but more likley with his knowledge for fat pay checks,IMO.

Sorry Russel,go back to doing stand up.

How could you even believe that?

He's figuratively selling people Che Guevara t-shirts.

Those t-shirts are made by children in China, and imported by corporations financed by bankers. He knows it too because he bought them online two for 3 bucks and is selling them to gullible wannabe revolutionaries at 25 bucks a pop.

F capitalism right?

I don't think his issue is with capitalism as much as it is with income inequality. I don't know what he does with his money so I can't really judge him in that regard. I do know he grew up in a relatively poor family, so perhaps there is some genuine conviction there?

At any rate, I've always found his rants to be somewhat hypocritical given the fact he is a fairly wealthy man. It's just that I am aware of the fact I might not have all the details, nor do I know if he's just in it for the money or if he views his own actions in a different light. It's possible he could view his efforts to raise money as a source of revenue to continue what he sees as educating people. Whether that is right or wrong isn't for me to judge.

I do resonate with the message, because I think income inequality is a very serious issue, and it's one that I have been passionate about for many years. Who is better equipped to raise awareness about it then someone who is in the public light that also has some capital and time to work with?

I guess it all depends on whether you view his efforts as genuine or a simple money making scheme. I think if it was just about money and nothing else, he could probably make better use of his time.

He's a dumbass hippie twit of the first order. This vid is a riot. My 9 year-old nephew is way beyond this crap, yet people are saying Russel "blew their minds" with this spiel.
God, sometimes I almost weep for humanity.

Income inequality only make sense if you believe that wealth is finite

It is not.

he's laughing all the way to the bank at all the gullible idiot's that eat his bulsh@@ up.
the man doesn't care about any thing but his own pocket book, and he uses issues that he thinks that will generate cash flow for him.
