Russell Brand Destroys MSNBC Talk Show Host for Treating Him Like Shit
“Casual objectification” is an excellent term for not only what these people were doing to him, but for pretty much the entire institution of “celebrity.”
Also, Russell Brand is very funny. These people have no idea how to handle intelligent discourse blended with humor. They are speaking very different cultural languages. It’s a fascinating thing to watch.
Initially I was very encouraged. Unfortunately, the mainstream media now seems far more interested in what I said when I was 17 or what my girlfriend looks like rather than, say, the largest program of suspicion-less surveillance in human history.

There was an older indian gentleman sitting next to me on a plane once when I was around 17 years old, and we hardly said two words to each other - I dont know if he spoke English well- but he had so much kindness in his mannerisms and in his actions, you could just see it in his eyes. He even had the book ‘How to make Friends and Influence People’ in his lap. His kindness and gentleness impacted me so much that I think about it all the time. This may seem like a really insignificant story but it warms my heart every time I think about that man. God bless him wherever he is.
It’s unbelievable how you can affect someone else so deeply and never know.
