Robert Kirchner — Russell Brand’s Revolution

Who would have thunk that the revolution would be spearheaded by Russell Brand. Robert Kirchner looks at Brand and his latest book, Revolution, from the vantage of an anarchist (of the left).

Why should anyone serious care about Russell Brand? Because culture shapes society and its institutions and celebrities and music shape culture, especially the culture emerging with youth.

So here's a celebrity who self-identifies with anarchism in a contemporary environment of high employment where youth sees its future disappearing, class power is coming to the fore, and populism is rising.

Turns out that TPTB are indeed taking note of Brand and not favorably.
