If you truely want to understand the growing movement challenging our political systems and corporations then have a look at this extraordinary Newsnight interview with Russell Brand.
Engagement in collective conversation and dissemination of information has shifted the balance of power. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have become powerful weapons in the hands of dissatisfied voters, employees and customers around the world.
Leaders around the world better pay attention. Russell Brand represents a widespread disconcern with leaders, who don't get the new reality and haven't fully understood that a connected world bring about transparency and leads to an increased need for accountability.
No matter how many leadership skills and personal characteristics a leader possesses, it ultimately boils down to two crucial things. A good leader must be ethical and a good leader must be effective.
Russell Brand's words are a strong manifestation of a changing social contract between leaders and followers.
The interview is facinating. In interviewer Jeremy Paxman's world all legitimacy comes from the parliamentary process and the monarchy. In Russell's world things are different. In Russell's world people are so fed up with capitalism that there is a high likelihood of revolution.
