Lawrence Lessig: Political Corruption & Vote Buying

Lawrence Lessig: Political Corruption & Vote Buying

This is a very good Ted Talk on the problems of political corruption and vote buying in a democracy.

He has created some very clear illustrations of the problems and shows a good sense of humor as well… I have a problem with his solutions.  Watch the video and continue reading below.

Excellent presentation with proposed solutions for political corruption and vote buying are leaning in a better direction.

Great presentation for a solution based on opposites. Opposite is not the same as better.

He makes excellent points, easy to understand, for a few of the reasons the system is broken.

His solution is to change the people in charge of problem creation… The problem is not how lunatics are elected. The problem is that the lunatics have taken the power to take from 1 person to give to the politically blessed.

The problem is not about how to elect ignorant and arrogant rulers, the problem is citizens are serfs and electing rulers is not a solution to the problem of slavery,wars, mega-monopoly protection and promotion, and monopoly money under political elites.

When people have the right to “Just say No!” to our rulers, we will begin to see the blessings of Individual Freedom, Free Markets, Innovation, Competition, and the Normal Process of Prices Decreasing While Quality Goes Up.

When people can choose and post what system of law they will operate under, we will see systems of law improve.

The only democracy in history worth bragging about is the free market.

The only way to protect your Individual Rights and Freedoms, which are the source of abundance, harmony, unfettered opportunity, health, morality and justice, is to protect the Individual Rights and Freedoms of those you neither like nor approve of.

There is no other way.

Ride with The Liberty Gang with your Pledge to protect the Individual Rights and Freedoms of those you neither like nor approve of.
