My purpose here is to not dispute any of the statements that Brand makes. He is pitch perfect and dead on with his assessments. Brand voices what many of us who have been paying attention have been saying for years. For that I am grateful. However, many other ‘celebrities’ have said virtually the same things and been publicly tarred and feathered for it. Yet, Russell Brand has been on all of the mainstream corporate media’s talk shows with all of the international recognized hosts and his celebrity only grows. Why?It is entirely possible that Brand has caught a wave of thought whose time has come and he has tapped into the sub-conscious of the masses and glibly voices that. What we do know is that Russell Brand sells, and the corporate media will present the public with anything that sells…more cars, credit and soap etc. I ask you…what happens when Brand’s message becomes passe’ to an attention span shortened public? When his compelling persona and message becomes old hat? When Brand doesn’t draw the attention he once did?
