    Default Russell Brand Calls For Socialist Revolution

    FAMOUS ACTOR CALLS FOR SOCIALIST ‘REVOLUTION’ AND ‘MASSIVE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH’ IN BRUTALLY HONEST SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW


    Actor and comedian Russell Brand is not shy about making his extreme far-left political views known. He doesn’t care if people disagree with them and he certainly doesn’t believe that he should keep his ideas to himself because he’s just an “actor.”

    But those unfamiliar with Brand’s in-your-face style might be surprised by the actor’s brutal honesty in a recent sit-down interview with BBC’s “Newsnight.” Not only did he openly call for a socialist-style “revolution” and the “massive redistribution of wealth,” he also urged people not to vote or participate in the “facade” that is modern-day politics.





    To him, “the lies, treachery and deceit of the political class that has been going on for generations” make voting a pointless exercise.

    So what type of political system does Brand want to see implemented?

    “A socialist egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution of wealth, heavy taxation of corporations and massive responsibility for energy companies and any companies exploiting the environment. I think the very concept of profit should be hugely reduced.”

    When asked if he truly wants a revolution, Brand said such a revolution is inevitable. However, he acknowledged he hardly has all the answers as to how the system would work on a global scale.

    “Don’t ask me to sit here in an interview with you, in a bloody hotel room, and devise a global utopian system,” he said, adding that he’s “absolutely” calling for a revolution.

    “I’m calling for change, I’m calling for genuine alternatives,” he added.

    Well, he certainly agreed with redistributing a chunk of Katy Perry's wealth into his pocket.

    He was worth about $15 million before the divorce, and he got some chunk of Katy Perry's $45 million, so in that sense he "lives what he preaches."

    But why is it that these people always want the government to force this on everyone? Shouldn't he show good faith by giving away most of his money voluntarily?

    I haven't seen anything that even remotely made me think this guy had any talent in any way shape or form.

    I don't recall him ever saying anything that sounded 'smart" at all ever.

    He's a boob. Bottom line it, he has no business talking about anything that has to do with anything political especially when it comes to the massive reconstruction that it would take to make this moronic scenerio work.

    let him go live and work in a socialist country for a few years, after 10 years of doing it (give him NOTHING going in since it's so great he should be fine) and lets see how he does.

    Why is it always the mass distribution of wealth when it comes to corporations/government but somehow Brand's or anybody else's personal wealth is off limits? I'll take some of his wealth if he's offering.
