We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim - Lawrence Lessig
لارنس لسینگ: ما مردم، و جمهوریای که میبایست دوباره خواهانش باشیم
Lawrence Lessig, who I met in early , educated me about the need for campaign finance reform to keep government, and in turn, the law from favoring corporate interests over the interests of average citizens. Lessig is brilliant and sincere. Please take the time to check out his point of view. His organization Rootstrikers is doing great work! I began that talk in a similar way, with the same argument about the corruption our government suffers.
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. Lawrence Lessig We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim. Once upon a time, there was a place called Lesterland.
Request Info. July 02, by Logan Harper. Lessig offers a simple solution that gives the republic back to the people it was intended to serve: Funding must be spread out among all people, so that the citizens may determine who runs in the general election, not the funders.

Response: Lessig addresses the political corruption in the united states. The framers wanted a representative democracy, that the government would be dependent on the people. The economic influence plays a big role of the funders. But that small percentage of funders can completely influence the turnout of the government, the country. These funders make sure that the people are not doing well and worse off because the worse that we are the funders achieve more success economically fundraising for their own benefit.
