We may have found our new George Carlin. Two weeks ago Russell Brand made the talking heads on MSNBC look like corporate propagandist fools. Now he scorches the blatant criminality of bankers. We need people like him to connect with the Millenials and get them angry enough to lead the coming revolution. Slowly but surely more people are awaking from their stupor and realizing we live in a corporate fascist state that is designed by the ultra-rich to benefit the ultra-rich. Wall Street bankers and Washington politicians are part of a criminal conspiracy to bilk you out of your wealth through inflation, accounting fraud, and debt manipulation. Open your eyes. Brand and many others already have.
Here is a link to the entire show from which this clip has been excerpted.
The credibility trap is a means by which the perpetrators co-opt, and essentially attempt to hold to blackmail, the entire power structure of the status quo. Note too how the CEO defense and other gross generalizations of culpability and the law are such an instrumental part of the aftermath of this type of widespread corruption.
These financial con men do not rely on loyalty, trust, and the truth, because they have no part of it. Instead they use deception, threats and blackmail to achieve their ends, always, no matter in what patriotic or ideological wrappers they may seek to cloak their perfidious means.
As a bonus, here is a clip of Russell Brand completely unhinging the spokesmodels and poseurs on MSNBC. I found it to be almost embarrassingly hilarious. These consider themselves to be serious journalists of the highest order, and look down upon those who struggle on in bringing truth to light without the high pay and reassuring cocoon of corporate sponsorship.
