Libertarian Review: Russell Brand

Russell Brand attacked parliamentary democracy on Newsnight recently and told Jeremy Paxman why he doesn’t vote. Brands criticisms of the establishment have caused a stir because they are true. The days of party politics enjoying popular support are gone.

But what is to be done? Brand advocates windfall taxes on corporations and an “egalitarian socialist” system but admits he has no idea how that might come about. He seems to think that other people know how to do it.

I’m cynical about this. The left have played all their cards and can only mouth empty rhetoric. Brand is no stranger to profiting from mega corporations either.

In this review I take a deeper look at these issues and Russell Brand.
