Russell Brand on Newsnight

Russell Brand was on Newsnight on Wednesday evening and lots of people have been commenting on what he said. Lots of it has been quite laudatory, so one wonders what it was he shared that was so inspiring.

Have you got that?

  • Brand wants a revolution
  • He doesn’t believe this can be achieved by democracy
  • He wants to install a socialist system by this revolution

So one wonders, given that Brand has rejected democracy how will he maintain this socialist system when people want to change? I know someone who can advise.

LeninIt is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

We do not have time to play at “oppositions” at “conferences.” We will keep our political opponents… whether open or disguised as “nonparty,” in prison.

Seriously folks, if you support a man who wants to change the political system regardless of the democratic will of the people, you will get everything you deserve.
