Fire-brand Russell is on incendiary form here as he sets out his provocative manifesto for an utopian society, on a personal and global level.
Harnessing his wordsmithery, and fuelled by his righteous anger at apathetic politicians, he discusses ecology, equality, rioting, the financial meltdown and tax evasion while hammering home the point that the super rich – that scant one per cent – owns nearly half the world’s wealth.
Love him or loathe him, Revolution is still a rallying cry for change: ‘Our system is broken. End the hypocrisy.’
