Russell Brand: "Socialist Egalitarian Society"... Sounds FoolproofSubmitted by sjmirando on Thu, 10/24/2013 - 14:44
Definitely agree with his assessment of politics and refusal to participate in sham elections. Disagree with his proposed solutions. He essentially took 10 minutes to say, "TAX THE WEALTHY." Heard it already. Think its been tried. Not particularly original. Always seems to backfire on the middle class. Some bloggers are calling this a cry for Revolution! HAH! Since when does revolution include greater taxation? All successful revolutions have been a revolt against GOVERNMENTS and their IMPOSED taxes on the public! We don't revolt against CORPORATIONS! They cannot control us through force. His solutions are antithetical to change! They are quite frankly MORE OF THE SAME.
"Socialist Egalitarian Society" means an all-perfect government forcefully taking all the wealth and giving equal amounts to every citizen. Sounds foolproof. Absolutely no room for abuse or deception in that type of system.
