These ideas that Russell is proposing are nothing new. They are, in fact, old, dating from the 60's-70's and emanating from a variety of sources from a mass production/homogenized method from Erhard Seminars Training (EST) to Esalen.
The claim is that this is the secret that the elites don't want you to know. On the contrary, it's been in our schools. Check out page 25 or skim through it all: www.esalen.org...
Where I disagree is that this is somehow a socialist endeavor. Hardly. From page 9 on the above linked document:
1989: hosted Boris Yeltsin on his first trip to the United States. Esalen arranged meetings for Mr. Yeltsin with President Bush, former President Reagan, and many leaders in business and government. According to Yeltsin's biographers Leon Ahrens and Timothy Colton , this trip catalyzed his turn from Communism and his decision to quit the party, which in turn led to his central role in the end of formal Communist rule and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
Esalen hosted Boris Yeltsin and even Yeltsin credits the trip as being the impetus to leave Communism behind. Now socialism is not communism but we're talking about an entity who hooked him up with the very much capitalistic Bush, Sr. and Reagan...Who really benefits from apathetic individualism? Governments and business, especially in times of turmoil.
..maybe you can tell us exactly why this tibetan buddhist monk is using a human skull in this ritual?
Also 2011 RB was still part of 'The charade' (his words), it has only been this year that he's been more open minded about the world.
are we talking about the same guy here?
the guy who once climbed naked on top of a parked van at a protest?
the guy who'd like to "ride of a wave of sperm with his audience members" in a celebration of love and unity?
the guy who has all the (new-age) eastern religion paraphenalia in the background of his shows?
he's been "open-minded about the world" for some time now, don't you think?
the way 'open-minded' is being applied to Russel here,
is analogous to the open-mindedness and diversity of the new-age movement.
(it's difficult to stand for a particular issue when the majority have already been influenced, don't you agree?)
this is what people like Russel Brand are used for, (i think i already refered to it as the thin end of the wedge in a previous post) he's going to be a toned-down version of david icke, people will "FOLLOW" him (as one member inadvertantly stated) ..perhaps on TWITTER? (even the linguistics show where this is all meant to lead to..)
even jesus says "the doctor must be where the sick are"
(i'm just believing you at your word, that you don't actually run around with this stealing person, taking old ladies garden gnomes at 4am in an ice-induced frenzy)
well.. that's probably because every few decades this false-spirituality tries to reveal itself again in some 'new' form.. you even use the word 'fad' to describe this..
i don't know your views on christians? you must at least be credible if you know what a 'proper christian' is? (just teasing)
..you mean that "do unto others" thing"?
..something that actually stands for something was necessary to get the point across
i'm sure as a buddhist you're a really nice person,
but i think this would make you someone who probably would be receptive to someone like russel brand
and i think you and Russel are unaware of some of the activities of head office..

No "ism" can function in the current society, as morals are missing; and rules are arbitrary.
A society that is based on me-first and greed-always is bound to fail, no matter what the ideology.
Some smart people of the world need to sit together and discuss what has worked and is likely to work for a multi-ethnic multi-racial world. We need harmony between peoples and universal rules.
We need a world society that rises above nationality.
We need rules where the fruits of labor are similar all over the world. Where guilty can be punished no matter where they run.
There is a deeper side to the world we live in and RB is the only person vocalising this on the MSM. Perhaps he isn't sincere, perhaps what his head office does is questionable, the reason I am happy he is about is because he's the only person the public is exposed to who actually has something of true importance to say.
