Lawrence Lessig on democracy, dependence and cash
Lawrence Lessig’s brilliant insights on the roots of America’s current deep discontent with Congressional governance were the highlight of the Ideas Boston Conference last October. Lessig says an improper dependence on the wrong donors has undermined public trust in our democracy. The video of his talk, including one of the better uses of Powerpoint I’ve seen, is at last available online. Watch Lessig as he crisply introduces three arresting ideas about democratic society on his way to an argument for essential campaign finance reform.
