CAMBRIDGE, England - January 16, 2014 - Actor Russell Brand told college students that drastic measures were needed to seize power from the corporate and political elites.
“They’re only in charge of us if we allow it,” Brand said. “Complete noncompliance, complete disobedience, then the alternatives will emerge. We need to create a paradigm that makes the old one obsolete. That’s what we have to do. Not comply (with) it, because then we’ll get drip-fed little measures. ‘Oh, well, we’ve given you recycling bins.’ Thanks! The planet’s still f*cked.”
