Abstract:

Russell questions the value of heroes and leaders. 'Messiah complex' is a disorder where sufferers think they might be the Messiah. Did Jesus have it?

Would Gandhi be into Apple? Would Che Guevara endorse Madonna? Would Jesus be into Christianity? He concludes it's all a load of old rubbish and encourages the audience to stop voting, ignore advertising, look to the transcendent within themselves and other. and kick over some bins on their way home. Plus there's sex. Obviously -- Container.
