Lawrence Lessig: “Republic Lost”
Our greatest enemy isn’t radical Islam, climate change, or pugnacious Canadians. It’s corruption. In his infuriating yet somehow optimistic blockbuster “Republic Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress — and a Plan to Stop It,” law professor Lawrence Lessig outlines the nauseating rot within our Capitol, stripping away political pretensions and telling it the way it is. If everyone read this book, we’d have a bloody revolution. Don’t worry: We’re too busy paying off The Man.
