Can we make 2020 something more than a civil war between Democrats and Republicans? That’s the challenge that has inspired this podcast by Lawrence Lessig. Without doubting the urgent need to defeat our current President, Lessig lays out a strategy that leverages the common ground that unites America, to the end of fixing our rigged and broken democracy. Drawing upon the history of other moments of fundamental change in America, Lessig maps a strategy that steps above our partisan divide. It is a moonshot, no doubt. But it is the one shot that could get us beyond the pathological division that destroys our government today. This is the conversation that the politicians won’t give us. And that’s precisely why we citizens must begin it now.

A gem

Republican? Democrat? Unaffiliated? Doesn’t matter. What changes do you want to see in America? Free university? End welfare? Doesn’t matter. Nothing matters unless you have the ear of Congress and none of us do. Congress spends all their time sucking up to billionaire campaign funders who, in the end, get whatever they want. Changing this inherently corrupted system is Lessig’s focus. He speaks clearly and elegantly and his message deserves to be heard by all.

Unparalleled clarity

I found this podcast through an interview on Joe Rogan. Lawrence details the systemic governmental impediments to representation of the majority of Americans, and the historical basis for the changes needed.

Highly recommend.

If you are an American living in today's political climate, YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST. So much time is spent complaining these days without solution. Lessig dives into the core of what the problems are not the symptoms and offers a step by step method for fixing our democracy.
