Russel Brand as Evolutionary Philosopher
Transcribed excerpts from various media interviews:
"Anyone that galvanizes people, brings people together, points us to the better aspects of our nature and helps us to overcome our basic aspects like fear and desire — I think these people are worthy heroes, rather than the heroes that are nominated today."
"I don’t think we should be propagating the idea that famous people are magical and special because it makes people feel like their lives are no good. And I don’t think we should be living in that kind of fearful paradigm."
"We elect to ignore the spiritual at a cost and deficit for ourselves, for our culture and for our planet. We are integrally, indefatigably related to our environment, and we live in service to our environment because Self is a temporal illusion."
"What"s important and defining are the things we all share. Love, unity, togetherness. As long as we have a culture that suppresses these ideas in favour of negative human traits like greed, selfishness, and lust, as long as these are promoted, we will exist in opposition to each other and we will be exploited by corporations that prey upon these negative traits of humanity."
"The line between good and evil runs not between cultures, religions or creeds, but through every human heart. Because I recognize that line in myself, I would prefer a culture that didn’t celebrate, exacerbate, and stimulate the most negative aspects of our species… Deify them, reward them financially until we get to a cultural hysteria where we are detroying the planet. We need systems in place that ackowledge the reality, not benefiting the elite."
