Brevity really is the enemy of understanding.´´ If you want to say something that questions the religion( Ruling Paradigm), you're expected to give evidence, and that you can't do between two commercials. So therefore you lack concision, so therefore you can't talk.´´—Noam Chomsky, Conversations with History Institute of International Studies, University of Berkely.
Brave effort Russel and Milliband, but a longer interview is needed to pin down what he stands for and what the questions and problems are. More of a benefit to Milliband I would have thought and generates rather more heat than light.
I think Russel is capable of following through on the questions but to me seems to lack confidence in his own intellectual depth and this seems to be holding him back. Might sound strange to say a narcissist lacks self confidence but if with knowledge certainty decreases it is consistent with the learning curve Russel has clearly been on. For me personally I think its worth cutting Russel some slack and offering support and encouragement I think he has what it takes to kick these issues around and Pin TPTB down on issues. His interview with Owen Jones is quite good actually.
