2)  We the People, and the Republic We Must Reclaim  (Le$terland) :  In this  April ,2013, TED Talk Lawrence Lessing describes the crisis of corruptive money in the American political system.  The TED sponsors describe his presentation this way: “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.”  The twenty minute talk is actually much more lively than this description sounds — although “blistering” is certainly accurate.   If you don’t know who the “Lesters” are, listen to Lawrence Lessig.    To see the video:  Click here.
