Lawrence Lessig: We the People, and the Republic We Must Reclaim

Lawrence Lessig

Watch the video. Read the book. Understand how money corrupts our system of government. Learn how to be part of the solution.


This is why it is difficult to get excited about voting. I’m getting really fed up with our Wall Street – driven culture. I am a fan of capitalism and egalitarian democracy. But it has been “corrupted” – using the word as Mr. Lessig uses it.

Don’t let the “Lesters” get you down. Just support those who want to change the system and decrease the corrupting influence of concentrated campaign funding.

Oh, I understand. I rarely let my feelings get in the way of my responsibilities, but many do. Which may be reflected in the low voter turnout.
