http://news.yahoo.com/column-russell-brands-socialist-revolution-215831724.html

Russell Brand, the British comedian, used a guest editorship of the 100-plus-year-old leftist magazine New Statesman last month to call for a "total revolution of consciousness and our entire social, political and economic system." Capitalism, and the ideology that sustains it — "100 percent corrupt" — must be overthrown. He also doesn't think people should vote, as partaking in democracy would further the illusion that a rotten system could change. It was a call, albeit chaotically phrased, for a socialist revolution.

This.

I will actually listen, and maybe care, to the first one of them that totally divests their personal wealth and then spouts this drivel.

Depending on how smart he is (or perhaps how smart his manager is) you may be right.
Certainly no one with the least bit of intelligence believes that a "socialist revolution" is going to happen.

Any time some one suggests sharing the wealth to me, I counter with the suggestion to spread the pussy.

Some people get it, some don't.

Russel Brand is an idiot.



You know, most hippie libtards that want socialism don't really understand what it is. They're focused on the receiving end of it - "to each according to his need."  They think this means that they, and everyone else, will have everything they need and that nobody will be poor or destitute anymore.

But they are forgetting the other half. FROM EACH ACCORDING TO HIS ABILITY. You think you're gonna sit on your ass waxing poetic about 17th Century French Underwater Basketweaving at the local Starbucks all day? NOPE, YOUR ASS IS GOING TO WORK. You have no valuable skills? YOU WILL DIG DITCHES AND DO MANUAL LABOR.  Don't like that? OFF TO THE GULAG FOR YOU!

Fine.

No problem. Just like how the idiots in the streets of Phnom Penh clapping and cheering for the Khmer Rouge were among the first to be killed,he would be in the 1% of those whose wealth needs redistributed.


Funny how they are deluded into thinking they are actually useful rather than easily replaceable entertainers.

I agree.  Brand is revolting.  Even more revolting when he opens his mouth and speaks.

Brand, I challenge you to prove your bullshit and reject all capitalism, starting with your own personal wealth.

He's an unfunny shitbag. Hopefully he can convince a few more fucktards to not vote.

I do partly agree with the statement that voting gives the illusion of change.  Seems like the only way you could get any true change in the system would be to create laws that the lawmakers have no interest in passing because it would not benefit them instead of those they are serving.

And be honest, when somebody like Ted Nugent says something, we eat it up.

They're paid to talk.

While a capitalist and/or democratic system can become corrupt,   a socialist system is always intrinisically corrupt.



I'll stick with our current system, thanks.
