Lawrence Lessig: We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim

All I can say after watching this presentation is: “HEAR, HEAR!” It’s not only the USA that suffers from this type of corruption. Other countries too, which seek to emulate the democracy of the world’s reigning superpower, most probably also suffer the same type of problem. Lo and behold, the corrupted political economy existing in many republics today.

Hello to all the politician-puppets of the super elite club.


Video Synopsis:

“There is a corruption at the heart of American politics, caused by the dependence of Congressional candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. That’s the argument at the core of this blistering talk by legal scholar Lawrence Lessig. With rapid-fire visuals, he shows how the funding process weakens the Republic in the most fundamental way, and issues a rallying bipartisan cry that will resonate with many in the U.S. and beyond.”
