      @Fizz: David Steel said something similar about Margaret Thatcher, but the fact remains that these people have committed evil deeds.

      Caligula was not killed because he was a madman or wicked. He was a reformer who spoke plainly and acted in acccordance with his utterances and stated belief. So this goes way back, rhis pressure to conform to artificial archetypes.

    Oh I’m sorry do you want to be the person that’s hated by their entire party and country? She’s probably one of the most strongest people to have ever walked this year earth. Do not criticise someone that can’t criticise you.

    +Russell Brand, I disagree in a way. While we may be encouraged to be more robotic in a way, we're strongly programmed now to be emotionally reactive, even to the point of demanding we sacrifice our own agency and individual liberties! The core of thought BETWEEN the two is what's being eaten away.

    The reason why politicians have to put on a fake persona is that if they all said what they wanted you would have what the left is doing to Donald Trump all around the world.

    Theresa May crying at her resignation is very telling. She was in over her head and should NOT have been there in the first place. Weak weak weak.

    This is so true i wish more people running for office were more blunt and real. People like Bernie sanders and Trump because regardless of what they say we believe they are saying what’s actually on there mind.

    You know Russell, this is the appeal of the far-right and people like Nigel Farage. They ARE talking like normal people and saying things normal people relate to. The REAL left, not globalist liberal fake-left needs to act on this and do exactly what you say to make the country better.

    Russell, the things you speak of completely resonate with me, however I fall into the ignorance that you describe in how we view people like Theresa. How can I learn to have a more open-minded opinion about such people and systems?

    Thresa May; just a person, but power was attractive to her, as it is to Boris. Part of the attraction of powerful jobs is the promise of control. Its the need to control that we must relinquish in order to regain our humanity.

  • wonderer2

    I didn't see any tears, I didn't hear truth when she said "the country I love". True her voice quivered but that happens with any strong emotion. What I heard was anger and resentment topped off by her actions "the real tell" of slapping her notebook shut then stomping away in a display of narcissistic injury that you didn't show. Words can be deceiving but the body language is hard to hide.

  • David Jarvis

    Totally agree about politicians and others in positions of power and authority increasingly shackling their humanity in order to meet internal and external expectation as they work their way to the top.
    I’d argue it’s not a systemic problem though, it’s fundamentally a human one. Humans create the systems, and I think this is what you mean when you say that the change has to come from within us.
    How to unite or stimulate that change though, when it is such a personal process? and such a scary leap of faith. It feels as though if enough people realised that change we might reach a tipping point, but even then would it be a process of going with the majority rather than deep inner change?
    I wonder if this change could be stimulated by an idea or a truth that becomes un-ignorable.
    For me, that idea is that we have no free will. When we consider that we and all of our expressions and actions might be the combination of the amazing, unique individuals we are, coming into contact with all of our internal and external experiences, past and present (and by extension those of everyone around us) in an infinitely complex equation, I believe we have no choice (no pun intended) but to try to understand each other’s actions rather than judge. I think this is healing.
    Build a new system based on the need to understand each other and our own nature. Stop trying to add value to our own lives at the expense of others by saying “I’m better because I made this choice and you didn’t.”
    You no more made that choice than you chose your own eye colour.
    We are the incredible receptacles (for want of a better word) and vehicles of human experience/consciousness. My consciousness is not yours, it is uniquely and unfathomably my own, but we have to try to understand each other. Find common themes.
    Now, how to live this myself rather than just comment about it?!

    Russell Brand...egomaniac who thinks his word carries weight and hates with a passion, so that alone makes him dangerous, and I think all that heroin in the past has addled his brain. I remember the Andrew Sachs humiliation by Brand and Jonathon Ross. Nasty foul mouthed psychopath!

    Hey Russell - you do know that the unicorn in the British coat of arms represents Scotland. Interesting you should call it the "divine feminine" and the "creative". It is chained because a free unicorn is a "dangerous beast".

    Someone will finally have the guts to pull out the Mutton Gun and put to Brexit to sleep.
    In five yrs there won't be a better place in Europe to be than Britain, with fk all to thank Britain's top 2-3% for.
    That is, of course, if you're a semi skilled person with aspiration.
    The carnage of technology and it's Tyrant Kings has been carefully concealed through choreography.
    It's coming violation of the former Working Class will surpass all of European history in it's Barbarism.

      Madzguy007 He may speak differently, but he has done nothing different than what any other Republican President would’ve done. He’s instilled the same policies. He’s brought back swamp neocos like Bolton, Pompeo, & Abrams. Different actor, same results.

    Russell you are making some assumptions as to why she was crying or even if those tears were genuine. Frustration, anger, hate, fear, sadness, loss can all generate tears. Which of these was she showing and what was she feeling as she did so? As has been written "The rich do not think like you and me" and I doubt that people who rise to the top of political power think like 'normal' people either.

    Glad to see her go no sympathy, she should have gone earlier. Bye Bye go away. She will be the written in the British history as the worst prime minister who turn the country to be a laughing stock, to be humiliated begging nation. She shamefully refer herself like Margareth Thatcher as the second female British Prime minister. Well no where near, remember she has been voted as the worst prime minister.

    i disagree
    systems are made like that, because at that level, you cant afford to make mistakes.
    fight a war and say, ooopsie. humans are not perfect, but the system has to be, because a lot of lives depend on it.

    for the time we have humans to lead, this will happen.
    we have created this system to best serve us.

    I have always explained this this as the "Possum in the chair " effect.
    It doesn't matter who is replaced, or what is done , the beat "WILL" go on, and on and on.
    Different face ,new chatter , but same old results.
    That is the way it works.
    I do believe that some people at the beginning of their careers in politics and big corporations have grand ideas of what they will contribute to society, and the adoration of the public . This seems to quickly be replaced by reality and the mentality of "Hey, where's my piece of the pie.
    I doubt this woman is as saddened, by not being able to serve the average 9 to 5er , as she is , at losing her place at the banquet table.

    Let's take the basic fact that she's married to Philip May whose Capital Group has the largest share in BAE systems.
    It's more than likely that she's profited from the (planned, threatened and often fatal) use of weapons on humans. Many who didn't get to explore their humanity for even a second. That alone should exclude her from being able to exert the power she has. Especially over foreign policy. Maybe it's been hard for her and all, but having those most prone to failure leading on the sole virtue of their ability to admit failure, is unaccceptable. When they don't even have the power of that virtue, it's clearly by design. A system feature not failure.

    Not buying it for a second. Those tears were fake and she only loves wealth and power just like her oligarchic masters. She is and always has been a tool for the elites. She didn't just suddenly become enlightened and empathetic to the masses right as she is leaving office. Give me a break.
    Russell I like you a lot and I do think you are spreading predominantly good messages that are on point most of the time. But come on, stop being so naive about these greedy corrupt politicians and their greedy oligarch masters. If these people did have souls once, they sold those souls long ago and there is no rehabilitating them.

    British people voted for something they did not understand and now you blame the person who had to put up with being abused in Parliament and then hounded out. I thought the English were smarter than that. I was wrong and as a Kiwi with English, Scottish roots it’s sad.
