This is one of the major reasons I believe we have massive surveillance by government in democracies around the world. This is one reason the government wants higher education to be prohibitively expensive and public school children not to be critical thinkers. Russell Brand is a bit of a loose canon. He’s funny.

I don’t just favor an increase in the minimum wage, I want to cap the amount of money anyone can earn. In other words, I want a maximum wage. I have often said that there is nothing any human being can do on this planet that makes their annual earning power worth tens of millions […]

When I was a child, Panama City Beach was a really fun tourist trap. Not much public beach was left in the tourist area. Destin, however, was nothing but public beaches with the rare, tiny house or two in one small area. Miles and miles of unspoiled, public beaches, as far as you could see. […]
This would be really funny if it weren’t such an outrageous act of government intrusion into the innocent lives of its citizenry!
