The Revolution of Love itself may not be televised, but on last night’s (23/OCT/2013) edition of BBC’s Newsnight, viewers may have witnessed the start of one. Russell Brand, actor-slash-comedian-slash-Messiah, in his newly acquired capacity as guest editor of the New Statesman’s just-published revolution-themed issue, was invited to speak with Jeremy Paxman why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.
Engaging in what would-be a fiery debate, Russell proclaimed “I don’t get my authority from this pre-existing paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people. I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity.”
"But before we change the world, we need to change the way we think."
