Lessig: The tyranny of tiny minds and big money: Time to rout the Cancer of Washington DC Insiders

Via Scoop.itDemand Transformation

After three years, it’s time for Obama to deliver on his promise to curb money in politics…   The corruption of this government is a cancer. And you don’t launch an attack on cancer by prescribing good eating and exercise. Nor can you make change believable by pushing for reforms that won’t change anything in that corruption. What Obama must do if he is to make American democracy possible again is to speak boldly, not practically, about reform. He has to give us the big ideas that would actually have an effect, not the pathetic tinkering that only makes the lobbyists laugh.
