Russell Brand Says It’s Time To Wake Up

shockleewebpic_russellbrandbbcComedian and actor Russell Brand recently did an interview on the BBC show Newsnight with British TV presenter Jeremy Paxman where he discussed voting, change, genuine alternatives, big business and destruction of the planet. In a dynamic exchange that once again shows how the mainstream media is falling off when it comes to real discussion, investigation, thorough questioning and debate.

‘I don’t get my authority from this pre-existing paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people’ Russell explained. ‘I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity…the planet is being destroyed, we’re creating an underclass, we are exploiting poor people all over the world and the genuine, legitimate problems of the people are not being addressed…people for the first time in a generation are aware of massive corporate and economic exploitation…this is time to wake up’.
