Lawerence Lessig’s Newest Presentation is Fantastic. Watch it Here.

Lawrence Lessig is not only an esteemed Harvard professor, a best-selling author, and a visionary political activist, but it was his incredible TED talk that introduced myself and thousands of others to the issue of money in politics. This Sunday, Professor Lessig gave an updated and equally inspiring presentation at the Stetson Law School. Enjoy.

    Just a suggestion. If you are going to hold up Kennedy as the voice of wisdom on this issue (one of your final quotes) and do not give equal voice to the other party, you risk alienating many Republicans. You need a Republican voice to balance. Perhaps consider using the following quote by Reagan who is the standard bearer of Republican values, which pretty much sums up the imminent danger our democracy is in, and our responsibility to ensure that it survives.

    “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

    Thanks for considering this in your next presentation.

    it’s not about democrat or republican it’s about the citizen. Drop party alliance.
