Russel Brand speaking about the current system, while I believe we can still use it to in act change and disagree with some of what he says It is a very interesting video.

He certainly is an extremely intelligent man who plays the fool, you can see it in the interview where he drops the character and gets serious.

Reminds me of what happens when ever pundits interview John Stewart and he tears them apart, it takes great intelligence to do comedy, and these reporters underestimate comedians constantly.

I like Russel Brand very much and I started paying a lot more attention to him after seeing this...



I was guilty of underestimating him as well until I watched that. He really seems to have his finger on the pulse of things. He is in an excellent position because HE IS underestimated. The interviewers are caught off guard and can't quite refute a lot of what he says when they are "ambushed" by his intellect. It takes longer to think of a good lie than it does to tell the truth so they have little time to recover and pretty up any type of fake response.

It's not over until the fat lady sings IMO. He has the right idea (mostly) I think.

For any revolution to take place the majority of the sleeping patriots must awake, and they are not. It will take an event of some proportion to get them away from the TV or whatever. The frontline of the next domestic confrontation is basically set and the players are on watch but there needs to be much awakening. You hear of buying weapons at stores and etc, and this gives the sleeping group comfort knowing their grand government has their back which is far from true. Libs, dems and socialist want to run your life from cradle to grave, but there are certain obstacles in their way ( such as the 2nd ammendment, which supports the 1st ammendment) They remove such rights of support and the rest fall like dominos. Any fool who does not see this coming may awake too late, hopefully the alarm clock is wound-up. The basic mindset for the 2nd ammend is solid no matter if it is 1779 or 2779, without it you have no freedoms at all, just dilusions...

You see that moment when he mentions the reporters own family history and Grandmother, he didn't know what to say to that.

This is no longer becoming an American problem, its the same in the UK, Canada, most western society seems to be marching toward a very dark place.

Wow. Just wow.

Man, Russell Brand is incredibly intelligent and so very well articulated.

Lets create a worldwide revolution, start a New New World Order, and appoint Russell Brand as our leader.

I'm going to go watch that video again. Amazing.

I really didn't like Brand when I first became aware of him, but that has changed drastically, and for a while now I've thought him incredibly bright, articulate and hysterical. I agree with a lot of the things he was saying, and wasn't surprised when I finished the video quite impressed with his points and delivery. We need to get him on ATS live.

Brings to mind the Alexander Tytler Cycle.


...Two centuries ago, a somewhat obscure Scotsman named Tytler made this profound observation: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

Alexander Tytler Cycle:

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage
SOURCE


We the western civilization are in the apathy to dependence stage it seems to me. Unfortunately out political leaders are traitors deliberately undermining us.

Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the World Trade Organization let the cat out of the bag.

...The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed. Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty...

That seems pretty darn clear to me and this guy is all buddy buddy with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. All three lecture at the Fabian founded London School of Economics that trains world leaders like JFK, George Soros, David Rockefeller and even Gaddafi's son who was awarded a Phd.

You would think that, at some point we would get tired of that cycle.

Is there a way to get off the ride?

Oh he annoyed the crap out of me, Until I heard him on Stern and actually listened to what he was saying. But he freely speaks his mind and intelligently about anything that's put to him.

The "time for revolution" is not now, and its not in the future.

The time for revolution was 20 years ago. The time to halt the insidious march towards tyranny was before it began its final push to conquer the lands; a push it would only contemplate making if it already had a very high degree of certainty that it would be successful.

The time for revolution was when Bill Cooper was talking about this # coming down the line, NOT when it has actually arrived and already become cemented into society.

At this point, there are one of two remote possibilities that I see that might pull us out of this death spiral we are trapped in.

One is some type of spontaneous mass consciousness expansion of a critical mass of people, and with the expansion of consciousness, came the ability to perceive in greater depth and with greater wisdom, and as a unified whole peacefully revolting through non-compliance.

Highly unlikely. People hate changing themselves.

Second, is a military coup led by a great leader who was dedicated at all costs to stopping this tyranny and had the undying devotion of a huge number of troops.

More likely than #1, but still quite remote.

The people wont revolt. They have their bread, and their circus. They are placated, docile, and tamed.

Revolution?

That boat has sailed.

And we missed it.

No doubt he is intelligent and he does have some good points but @ 4:40 he completely loses it IMO.

"Profit is a filthy word because wherever there is profit there is also deficit"?
Sorry, not true at all.
Wherever there is unballanced/uncovered spending and credit whithout worthiness THERE is deficit.

And his solution is a "socialist egalitarian centralized administrative system"?
No thanks. I'll have the opposite of that please.

Hi Benrl, always interesting. This is the problem, the UK has been dearmed in general along with pushes to other western types, and this same submission is being brewed up on our turf by our overseer liberals. We are basically freedom's last stand, and it will be extremely difficult for these elite progressives to pull this off with the obstacles we will deliver. This is waterloo...

So you want a capitalist, decentralized caste system?


Let me guess... you would be part of the caste that could own land, people, and make politcal decisions, right?

I agree. That was eerily like the speech the Christ would give if he came back angry as hell and not going to take it anymore.

Russell might have got everyone's attention with a comedy approach, but that was dead serious.

Epic.

Oh, and one final thing: while the real time for revolution was indeed 20 years or so ago, our last chance was in 2012. As improbable as it was, if there was a mass write-in for Ron Paul, this death spiral fiasco might very well have been halted.

All I can say is I did what I could. I wrote in for RP, and was able to get 1 other person to do so as well.
