TED Talks: Lawrence Lessig on We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim

An occasional post featuring talks by innovative thinkers, sponsored by TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). This is what the internet is made for – to allow challenging ideas to escape from their academic ghettos and hang out in a place where they can talk to each other.

American academic and political activist, Lawrence Lessig, succinctly skewers the root cause of political corruption in this talk – the insidious influence of campaign funding. It’s been said before, but Lessig does it with minimal elegance and real passion – a gourmet hatchet job.
