Russell Brand says Donald Trump getting elected shows that people have lost trust in the current system of politics and are ready for change. “How disenchanted, disillusioned, and disempowered can you be, that this seems like a sensible alternative?” he says.
Brand is a passionate advocate for a revolution of consciousness. He says he suspects we would not have got real change with Hilary Clinton. Trump, on the other hand, could signal a tipping point in the collective consciousness. “With Donald Trump, it is no longer possible to ignore that real change is required,” he says.
He says the change we are looking for ultimately won’t come from politics, but will happen on a deep, philosophical level. “We have to change the way we treat each other, change the way we see ourselves, change the way we talk about the world,” he says.
