    An INTJ's Conversation with Martin Luther King jr.

    You had a dream? Look buddy, I went to Berkley. You know how many assholes have told they had a dream?

    Blacks aren't being treated equally? Duh, thank you Captain Obvious, look at the all the people who rally around you, getting worked up about your over-idealistic blither-blather. All your emotional rhetoric is just muddying the search for truth. Oh yeah, let's all hold hands and sing we're free at last. You'd like that, wouldn't you, hippie?

    Let freedom ring? How exactly? What does that even MEAN??? What specific action should we take to achieve systemic change? I'm hearing a lot of hopes, a lot of dreams, but what I'm not hearing are suggestions for concrete action.

    You have no political knowledge, so why don't you go have a seat at the kids table. Adults are questing for truth here. I don't give a shit about your venting.


    Now, before you jump all over me, I obviously don't think Russell Brand's interview is anywhere near as important to this speech. I am merely establishing that passionate speeches that don't say anything new, can change the world.

    Something Brand and MLK do have in common, is that they believe that a great deal of a change has to come to within. And if you want to change people's beliefs and values, you can't just reason them out of it. It wasn't reason that created those beliefs in the first place. No, you have to access your emotions. You have to stir them up. You have to motivate them to change themselves.

    Brand may be far less important, but he certainly has stirred people up in his own small way.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I can't believe you just compared Russel Brand to Martin Luther King.

    And, ftr, MLK has been one of my greatest heroes since I was a child.

    Reading Letters from a Birmingham Jail my freshman year was one of the most important moments in my education.

    Somebody else can tell you about who made the four people I wanted in a painting my ESFP ex was having made for me.

    @skylights I want to thank you for articulating something that I've been trying to piece together and wrap my head around for ages. This thread has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride for me and I honestly did not see this coming. It tapped into an internal conflict which has been going on inside of me forever and bit by bit, with each enfp (and infp!) contribution, it is helped me lift the fog and finally sort this shit out. @Lady X, the same goes for your follow up on my previous post; it is nice to see this isn't just all in my head and I aint alone in this.
    I'm glad I could contribute... your posts have really been resonating with me as well, and clarifying my own feelings too.

Its time for people to wake up and do shit themselves..not let a select few run things and then we blame the select few for shit not working out..
    I think this is so important. I think that's part of Brand's speech and action, both. He's the editor of this magazine because he has a voice and inherently he has the right to be able to comment and contribute and be heard. It doesn't matter that he's not formally educated, or that he doesn't have a watertight plan for change, or any other specific. He's a part of the human public, a citizen of the world, and as such he has the inherent right to contribute in shaping how the world is. We all do. The people in power disenfranchise the people who do not have power because if they don't, they'll lose their privileges. So that interviewer... he shoots Brand down with questions... he tries to convince people that Brand's voice is not one worth hearing because he doesn't vote, or he doesn't have the specifics of a plan put together, or whatever other particulars. It's a crazy little microcosm of what's going on in the greater world.

    I'm not saying Brand is brilliant or Brand is the next MLK, but that's the whole point. He doesn't have to be anything to have the right to share his voice and not be silenced because someone with more power doesn't like what he has to say.

    as usual I agree with what or saying here

    Oh, no, I don't think he is the next mlk ppl

    But really, I don't hear too many speak about the same subject matter in the same position he is in...

    He has the right...just like anyone else...but he also has the resources...unlike others...
