    This man is pure gold.... Don't judge him until you give his KZclip channel an honest listen. Intelligent and brave, and delivers his hard honesty with humor... One of the very few sensible voices our there at the moment.

      @My Garden Zen sounds like you lack the capacity to understand him, which is strange because his target audience is literally everyone. He tries not to ostracise any listeners.

      @tony growley claim? You do realise you can see how many subscribers channels have you muppet.
      He has 5.85 I just went and checked for the last comment.
      Also as for your "claim" of 100k views, his latest videos all have more than that, any video older than a couple days has 500-1.3m views.
      And what about any of these numbers "doesn't add up" when the planet has 7b and US 300m, you make absolutely no sense, nothing you are saying is adding up.

    Russell is a hero. As a 53 year old ‘traditional’ man I couldn’t stand this guy, because I judged and pigeon-holed him. Now I challenge other figures in the public eye to stand up and start representing the people like Russell Brand is, instead of hiding behind your safe position, raking in money and ego boosting fame from a 100% corrupt system. This man has out everything on the line for US, because he is real. ❤️💪🏻

    Reading the comments here is hilarious. None of you must listen to Russell on KZclip everyday. In fact I will tell you I absolutely hated Russell Brand. Now, I think he is one of the beacons of free and fair information. He is intelligent, informative and cares about the world he lives in. If you don't watch his analysis on global politics, you're missing out. He is brilliant.

      Agreed russell brand is very funny and that is very much needed at the present time. But the idea that "he leaves it up to the listener" i really can't stomach. He simply says that when it's convenient but at other times (usually if it's not something he'll get censored over) he goes very much in depth with what he thinks. Also even if he simply repeated information and never gave an opinion, there can be a massive issue with selection bias (choosing to omit some sources and emphasise others to accommodate a pre-existing narrative, which the viewer would never find out about). It'd be much better if he simply said.."in my videos I am putting forward my opinion", so people can then balance it against other people's opinions.

    I was indifferent to Russell before watching his channel, I didn't hate or like him. Now I love the heck out of this fellow, he is reporting intelligently on all of the things MSM is afraid to broadcast on TV. Yes there are articles on everything, but none of it gets airtime, none of it get spread to the masses. Brand is spreading this stuff like omicron and it's amazing!

He sounds like a nut but everything he is saying is 100% accurate. It's only been in the past few years that more people are starting to wake up to reality & it's in large part bc of people like Russell who make sure good info gets out. But then of course they are labeled a conspiracy theorist by the powers that be 🙄

    When you look at all the greatest comedians of all time, they evolved into free thinking orators who deliver nuggets of gold that get you questioning, discussing and consuming knowledge. If it were delivered by your teacher in school, you'd most likely gloss over it, forget about it and go on with your day dreading the next class. But add in humor, intellect and a spice of charisma and you have someone whose not only impactful, but also very right and has you wanting more. Case in point Dave Chappelle, the GOAT.

      @Aaron Carter "Presenting cited facts" does not mean they are absolved from being wrong/ right. Choosing which cited facts to present while ignoring others, or emphasising certain cited facts over others is called selection bias and is what the mainstream media have been doing for decades, as a way of having plausible deniability about being biased. Unfortunately a youtuber/ podcaster is just as susceptible to doing this as the mainstream media.

      It's a difficult and contradictory path, (although I can understand his pragmatic reasons for doing it, and do not begrudge him) but he's got to be careful he doesn't end up, one of the numerous people 'Whole of the Moon' could have been written about.

    Been binging on Russell Brand's videos recently, and it's like my thoughts and opinion became its own person and it's this guy... most of the time.
    What makes his messaging really effective, especially when tackling sensitive topics, is his mix of humor and facts and rapid delivery.
    It's like getting you fired up and just before you reach boiling point you're doused with water to cool you off a bit, and it goes on and on for 10... 15 minutes.
    I don't necessarily agree with all his statements, but most of it are factual and on point.
    It's good to have someone this visible talk about real issues, who's unapologetic and frank.
    Although, I say this, not voting won't affect the change you want. If you're not presented with any good alternatives, pick the ones that closely aligns with the values and issues that concerns you. Because the consequences are real and can be severe and have lasting effects. Just look at what's happening in the States. Consequences of 2016 still impacting the country now.
    Exercise your right to vote, because sometimes, aside from running for office yourself to affect change, that's your only option.

      @Rob ok, go onto his channel and click on the videos tab, then scroll down about 2 years and look at ANY of his videos after that point, cause I'd say about 85% of them since then have either been disproven conspiracy theories or him actually saying something correct but using outrage and clickbait that conforms with right-wing propaganda to get the sheeple to watch it.

      @haggler You seem to have very selective hearing, considering he is blatantly advocating breaking up big business, high taxes on elites, and a generally socialist/left wing view of governance. But ok, just because he'll discuss issues you have pegged as "right wing" instead of ignoring them, even when they're valid and have a massive effect on the working class, who the Left is supposed to advocate for, you're writing him off. This is absurd.
      Russell is an old school leftist, but the new left is so preoccupied with dominating what topics can or cannot be discussed that they do not recognize this, and as such they are becoming more of an advocate for elite driven politics than for anything resembling a dissonant voice for the people. Russell understands this paradigm shift and has put his reputation at risk in a culture where reputation and being deemed 'correct' by the mainstream is your primary tech access currency. That is brave. He is also too new age/lefty for the right and too open to dialogue for the left - his audience are people who do not fit easily into the current partisan paradigm. The fact that your critique of him is that he's a sellout for the right tells me you're currently incapable of recognizing that a worldview apart from your own mainstream one might not be conveniently categorized as from the opposite side of the aisle to you. You're thinking in binaries while there are some like Russell who are thinking more broadly than that and deserve to be weighed as such.
