  1. Right on russell brand.. and Anarchy, is more effectively described as "Without Rulers" , you rock tho, and that is why bitcoin and crypto currency are the future,, decentralized currency… great conversation today guys

  2. Fair play, one of the most real, true conversations i’ve ever heard. Take two of the most inspirational minds, put them in a room with a microphone and magical things will happen! Honestly, I feel blessed to just to have listened. And am thankful and glad conversations like these are happening and being documented for the world to see. Its so refreshing, you guys have truly opened my eyes and put my faith back in humanity. Thank you!

  3. this is 90% Russell butchering quotes from different people, followed by a "HMMMMM" from joe as he tries to pretend that they're in any way profound or revelatory. even he gets bored of it towards the end.

  4. There's a reason the only fans of socialism are poor and/or young. You have nothing to loose, everything to gain. Spend 20 years building a business from the ground up, you wont see taxation the same way. What you will see is certain people working more than others and lazy fucks doing the bare minimum. Capitalism is a merit system. It's not perfect and there are injustices, but fuck is it better than anything else; morally, philosophically… anything "lly". You make your own life, you're not stuck in a cage. That's the whole concept behind freedom and liberty.

    Socialism would only work if we were robots, all born equal. An hive mind. Feeling-less human beings. No innovation, all prisoners of a numb reality. A very grey and bleak world.

    Why should I work harder if I get the same benefits of my neighbor who doesn't? There's no incentives. What gets innovation and technology going, is people fighting over the same bread. Money, in this case.

    A good example of socialism not working on a smaller level, is welfare. All you have to do is look at them. When you give free bread to pigeons, they don't tend to work for it.

  5. I agree with Russell. If the motivation to become 'great' is cars and bling, we live in a sick, misguided society. Greatness should be an award onto itself. Comodifying art cheapens it.

  6. Ironic that Brand constantly bemoans the fact that all human exploits are fuelled by monetary gain when he is only on this podcast to advertise his book which he wants us to buy for money xD
