Comedian Russell Brand: Book Revolution appears
In Germany he is known as ex-husband of Katy Perry in the UK comedian Russell Brand on the other hand a star. Now he has published a book of his knowledge of life: fame and money are useless, we need a revolution !
The best idea Russell Brand has lifted up on page 456: The proceeds of his book, he noted there, he’ll put in a cafe as he get a second chance in the former drug addicts. We welcome – if only to allow the other ex- junkies do not need to write a book like this all to find a new purpose in life – and strongly suggest that you: you Assisted good thing! Buy this book ! (But you come to, not then read God’s sake, the idea of the nonsense too).
Brand, 39, is known in the UK as a comedian, presenter and actor, with us rather than ex-husband US pop singer Katy Perry. For a long time he supplied the British tabloids with details of his drug and sex addiction. Meanwhile, he is healed, intoxicated only from yoga, from regular meditation, and the ideas leftist intellectuals such as Thomas Piketty, Noam Chomsky and David Graeber. A political esoteric. In his book’ Revolution. Instructions for a new world order’ he stirred it all comes together: yoga, meditation, theories – and it tastes even from the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. It’s a mix that befuddled the reader’s head as three Long Iceland Iced Tea.
A book like a bar visit
Fire writes on everything rustles him by the Root: memories of his childhood and youth in modest circumstances, stories of his wild time with lots of girls and glamor, theories of world revolution. What qualifies him as an author of a radical left political book?’ The fact that I’ve seen have what fame and fortune to offer, and that is not the answer’.
Some things are formulated clever, most of it is talkative. The reading of the book has to be imagined as a visit to the bar: a strange guy who already has three drinks in there, chatted to a says a only his life and then declared a world. The difference: The strange guy in our case is sober ( and you yourself unfortunately )
Fire is a former bad boy , which does its best to be good.. Hearty vocabulary and pithy sayings he still has it yet. On page 29 he writes:’ The whole Kyoto stuff – the reduction of carbon emissions by x percent by the year y – is nothing but bullshit.’ On page 98:’ Each version of a theology that manifests itself at the forefront only in magnificent robes and gleaming palaces for the guy who is bullshit.’ On page 133: Economic news on television are, you guessed it,’ a bunch of bullshit’. In short, our whole system’ is sick and crappy, and it makes us sick and rides us in the shit’.
Meditation for World Peace
It is fair to say that brands insult treasure is not so small as to suggest that just quoted passages he also railed against the’ arrogant Arschgeigen of Monsanto’ and complained that the financial world was outraged by Thomas Pikettys ideas,’ as if he had asked of them, flatten their sisters’. He writes that’ full for the ass’ is, choose to go anyway because no one coming to power of representing the interests of the general people. Exceptions he has not seen, and certainly not in the United States:’ The joy of Obama’s presidency after eight years of Bush is a thread blowjob at the end of a long, shitty evening the same. Very nice for the moment, but who pays the bill?’
Help us can only a revolution, because fire is safe. But how this revolution could get underway, he do not know exactly, and where they should lead, unfortunately not. His ideas remain vague and confused ( because the rich are then no longer dare to society so shamelessly exploit ) the abolition of all private security services for the rich. Abolition of all academic and other titles ( because people then meet as equal partners and not as Lord and petitioners ). Regular meditation and prayers ( because people then have more empathy with each other). Deletion of all those companies from the Business Register, which behaved criminally,’ such as Monsanto, General Motors, Philip Morris, Pfizer’. on fitness of all corporate assets to employees.
Many of Brands thoughts are not half wrong, they are ultimately have been formulated so like many before him. So simple, however, never. Brand says his critique of capitalism seriously, can not be taken seriously him. The joker is a joke.
