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 I think.edit on 10/23/2013 by Kangaruex4Ewe because: (no reason given)
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...
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.
...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
...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...
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.
And his solution is a "socialist egalitarian centralized administrative system"?
No thanks. I'll have the opposite of that please.
