Great interview. The BBC interviewer Jeremy Paxman asks Russell Brand what authority he has to criticize the current state of politics since he’s never voted, and Russell’s response reflects what most young people feel today – that his vote won’t change anything. Brand goes on to state that he doesn’t want to vote, not out of apathy, but because voting would mean that he would be, in effect, going along with the current system, pretending that his vote means something.
He states that it’s the politicians who are apathetic towards the needs of the people as they are beholden to their corporate sponsors.
It’s definitely an interesting take on the whole political landscape.
