First, go here
Mr. Lessig is actually qualified to run for what we are still calling high office here in the good ol’ US of A, but his real goal is not all the accolades and power that come with the job.
Are you even more impressed now?
With all of the excitement in the current presidential derby I was caught up in the whole Donald Trump escapade. I wasn’t going to bother voting until Trump stepped in when I thought, “What fun!”
Now, some might take that particular attitude as the words of an irresponsible, flippant, nay nihilistic citizen, but with a dimes worth of difference between the two parties, the banks and corporations holding all the cards and money, we’re not living in a free society, a democracy or even a republic anymore, Trump at least shook things up. C’mon, he admitted paying politicians to do his will, the media should have been all over that statement like white on rice, but the media is owned by guys just like Trump; worse even, who buy and sell politicians for lunch. They aren’t going to talk about the puppet-masters on the corporate owned MSM news channels! Dictatorships never do. Thing is, we know what Trump said is true, we’ve known for a long time it’s all true, yet when one of their own says it out loud we can actually taste it, we can experience the truth behind his words physically, like a punch in the face.
So freedom, what exactly is that? Here’s someone who can soundly explain the idea of what freedom is supposed to look like.
Oh, and don’t get me started on the Diebold Machines.
Yes, that HBO Documentary is dated, but it’s only gotten worse and computers easier to hack by nefarious underlings and Congress has done absolutely nothing to fix this.
Anyway… along comes Lawrence; I think some call him Larry, and I’ve been following this guy for over a decade, anyway he comes up with this idea on how to take our government back.
Now I had already resigned myself in great part to secession. I figured after the next election the banks will own everything including us, it’s the next step in this taking-forever-unfolding-economic-collapse, but I rolled Lessig’s idea around in my nut a bit and I thought, ‘Here is a secret door that could actually be a game changer!’ cause let’s face it, eventually we will have to come to our senses and do the right thing, right?
The bottom line: Give it a go, you got nothing to lose, seriously, unless you’re the 1% you have absolutely nothing left to lose and everything to gain.
Here are some more in-depth links I offer up for your exploration. I’ll add more as time goes on. So check back for updates.
