[pullquote] “I’ve taken the right, I don’t need the right from you, I don’t need the right from anybody, Im taking it!”
– Russell Brand[/pullquote]
As soon as we saw Russell Brand deliver a knockout blow to the BBC´s usually indestructible Jeremy Paxman we knew something special had occurred. On a global forum a man carrying the legitimate claims of a whole unawakened movement of potential ‘in waiting revolutionaries’ was able to communicate a few specific sound bites of absolute truth. Namely that these people, as all people are are under no obligation to earn, ask, be given or just wish for the right to demand real political change.
He said he was “taking that right”, and there he took it, simple as that with the whole world to see.
This interview released just hours before his feature editorial-ship of the “New statesman” and a 4500 word manifesto on revolution has become a fast social media hit with just about everyone that sees it talking about it and passing it on. He will even soon appear on the Joe Rogan Pod Cast in the United States.
We were, as so many others have been, so impressed with the interview and its subsequent response that we have chosen to report on it from a key indicator perspective to try to see whether the social media cables on revolution have any real life basis.
Below you will find the interview and a series of key indicators for the strength of the Russell Brand Revolution of which we will try to periodically update and expand in this article.
