Celebrities Are the New Proletariat

Russell Brand has international fame and a net worth of $15 million, and also used to bang Katy Perry. Nevertheless, in his own mind, he is one of the downtrodden toilers struggling to overthrow the greedy oppressive parasitical regime of bourgeois capitalism:

“A socialist egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution of wealth, heavy taxation of corporations and massive responsibility for energy companies and any companies exploiting the environment. I think the very concept of profit should be hugely reduced.”


Spare me these pseudo-Bolshevik ravings from movie-star Marxists. Go read Friedrich Hayek’s “The Intellectuals and Socialism.”

    What’s sad about Brand is that he is a child sex abuse survivor (homosexual abuse, if I remember correctly). Yet, he promotes a sexuality ideology that feeds every single attitude of pedophiles and adult sexual harassers and abusers out there: orgies, drugs, and rock&roll – that is, sex divorced from any ethics or a family structure; intense promiscuity, no commitment, no love, no marriage; making people into complete sex objects, to be used and discarded as needed by the predators.

    While he doesn’t advocate sex with children per se, Brand advocates their same dysfunctional and predatory attitudes towards adults.

    Brand is nonetheless clearly intelligent, and actually employs better English vocabulary than 99% of what you hear on MSM TV, from liberals to conservatives. He is quite articulate and can easily connect to the public, even if in the old Bill Clinton demagogic way.

    But Brand repeats the age-old problem with left ideology: just a bunch of male pigs complaining about class, while promoting the most dysfunctional and harmful forms of relationships, sexuality, family structures and parenting. That is, they criticize capitalism, while enforcing oppression, harm, and violence in the personal sphere.

    Kate Perry is just another turd of a liberal entertainer, with the same sexually perverted ideology as Brand. Too bad the public doesn’t flush her down the toilet.
