It is an inside revolution that creates an outer evolution, through centuries humanity has gone through the same process, today is no different. There are some great points raised by Paxo and Russell, that said the way this is communicated is through anger. Reaching higher levels of consciousness, in which the solutions of the problems that Russell is raising exist, requires for him to tap in to states of awareness in which he can communicate those ideas in a much more impact-full and effective ways, it is the ability to communicate through Empathy, solution focused, and through the infinite wisdom of love.

It is admireable to stand up and fight for something as big as the vision Russell is sharign in this interview. To awaken to the fact that there are global issues that each human being on the planet has a duty, moral responsibility, and the right to do something about it. However the governments in general are reflection of the overall state of awareness of the people it governs.

As more people awake and see that we are infinite beings, we have the ability to create and destroy worlds, and raise their vibrational state, the changes that Russell is talkign about will naturaly happen and filter in our goverment.

The goverment is doing their best with what they passionatly believe is right, the world we live in will always have "the good" and "the bad", acceptance is the key to maintain the equlibrium and not judge one or the other.

As more people around the globe tap in to the infinite wisdom that they themselves possess and know how to communicate that through the power of LOVE, we as a society know that the point is no longer merely the liberation of the individual; it's the evolution of self, culture and cosmos through the individual.

Gratitude goes long way, issues Russell raised are valid, the way in which they are raised might eliminate the very same people he is trying to reach out too as well to get people to listen.

I have lived in UK for over 23 years now, it is my home, and i am grateful for the many positive changes our governments have introduced one being full LGBT rights, although i personally work from place of love, empathy, and kindness and disagree with the "terrorist act" that got introduced following the chain of events, i am grateful for that too, as it is the balance of two what Love is all about.

Russell Brand May Have Started a Revolution Last Night

The revolution itself may not be televised, but on last night's edition of the BBC's Newsnight, viewers may have witnessed the start of one.

Actor-slash-comedian-slash-Messiah Russell Brand, in his capacity as guest editor of the New Statesman's just-published revolution-themed issue, was invited to explain to Jeremy Paxman why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.

"I don't get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people," Russell responded. "I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity."

And with that, the first shots of Russell's revolutionary interview were fired.

Over the course of the following ten-or-so minutes, Brand and Paxo volleyed back and forth over subjects ranging from political apathy, to corporate greed, to gorgeous beards.

Throughout the interview, Brand repeatedly dodged Paxman's efforts to trivialize his message — at one point Paxman literally called Brand a "very trivial man" — until finally, even the entrenched newsman appeared to relent against the rushing tide of Brand's valid arguments.

After Brand reminded Paxman that he cried after learning that his grandma too had been "fucked over" by aristocrats, the Newsnight host was stunned into silence.

"If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn't we?" Brand crescendoed. "Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I'm an 'actor'? I've taken the right. I don't need the right from you. I don't need the right from anybody. I'm taking it."
