In this episode of the Trews Russell Brand looks at the reaction of celebrities such as Liam Neeson, Seth Rogan and Michael Moore to gun culture and the film American Sniper.
”The broader issue is can you distinguish between heroic acts from individuals and the ends to which those heroic acts are used?”
”Most importantly what is the fuel behind all this phenomena? Fear! As long as people are frightened people want to buy guns. As long as people are frightened they’ll want to have heroic figures like Chris Kyle knocking of Iraqis and not thinking about the consequences like wether or not some of those people were children.”
”As long as we’re frightened and kept frightened we can live within the confines of these reductive arguments.”
~ Russell Brand
