Lawrence Lessig: Republic Lost
This is possibly the most important broadcast I have heard this year. In this address to the Commonwealth Club of California, Lessig outlines how money and corporate participation in politics has utterly crippled our representative democracy. We live in a plutocracy, and we must not submit to malaise in response to losing our country.
Please give this an hour of your attention. Things get rolling at about 5:30 minute mark. The address is engaging, well spoken, and the response to questions exceptionally interesting.
