Lessig deserves our attention.

I’ve always liked Lawrence Lessig.

If you don’t know him, let me offer his Tumblr here.

His TEDTalk, “We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim,” is must-see Internet.

Join the fight. Become a Citizen Co-Sponsor of the American Anti-Corruption Act at http://bit.ly/CitizenCoSponsor

 

 

He inspired me to learn more about the American Anti-Corruption Act and to launch my own sponsor site to gather signatures for it.

BTW, it’s still active. Feel free to sign it.

 

 

MayDaylogoHe inspired me to donate to his ‘experiment’ called MayDay.US, an organization dedicated to supporting candidates through small donations who go on record as fixing the corrupt system of money in politics as their main issue.

He inspired me to donate to the New Hampshire Rebellion and his walk to raise awareness of our corrupt electoral system.

Now’s he’s running for president.

He’s telling it like it is

<script>(function(d, s, id) {  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;  js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”;  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

 

Things are getting more interesting in the Democratic Party and for American politics.

We should be paying attention to Lessig.

About Peaceful Patriot

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
