Would you be interested in reading a paper (in submission) dealing with the Broken Political System Problem? If so, see this paper on “Finding the Fundamental Forces of the Sustainability Problem with Root Cause Analysis” at http://www.thwink.org/sustain/publications/papers/index.htm#FindingFundamentalForces.

The Broken Political System Problem is discussed late in the paper. How to solve it requires finding and resolving its root causes. Campaign finance reform doesn’t appear to resolve a root cause. Instead it resolves an intermediate cause, which explains why this solution, which has been tried before, has been less than effective.

Thanks for your tireless work on corruption, money in politics, and making politics work for the common good instead of special interests.

Too bad policies for too long and reckless spending regarding the events of the world cup have made the people come to the streets bringing about several important issues, but as you´ve said, we have to tackle the first issue – fixing the way our representatives get elected and assuring their independece.

Brazil is now trying to push a bill by popular initiative that very much follows the framework you have described out in book (http://www.mcce.org.br/site/).

I know it maybe a little too much to ask, but a word of encouragement in the social networks from a great reference for all activists and academics I believe that wold have a huge impact!

Well, besides the plea, I would just like to say that your book is superb and that I hope the translation to Portuguese comes soon!

Thanks for all your work and inspiration !

P.s.: Huge fan since CODE!

In Turkey there is no problem like that too. Well, In China not at all!! Well there must be a reason why American Congress has this unique problem for being corrupt just because funders contribute a lot more than non-funders.

2) Besides, John contributes $1MM and Adam contributes $1. How come John and Adam can have the same amount of vote, which is ONE? So John has to make it up somehow.

3) Maybe try bitcoins in 2016 instead of money?

4) Big money makes little kids eat McDonalds and chips just like it makes big kids to vote. That is to say big money can influence you through any means. So why doesn’t the gov limit fast food spending to $20 per month for each family? Citizens United vs McDonalds?? Come on Supreme Court, you can do that!

My friend Mike thinks that even if all candidates sign on to this funding scheme and eschew corporate contributions, special interest groups can still funnel millions into issue ads that support candidate A or B. how does your funding scheme address that?

However, a republic is not the same as a representative democracy. Corporations have been substituted (wrongly) as representatives of the taxpayers. The founders equated democracy with mob rule and if unchecked would tax the productive people to the point that the financial incentive to be productive would disappear. While the House should represent all the people, why not have the Senate represent the taxpayers? The requirement to vote for the Senate….. payment of income tax. This should restore the balance of power intended by the founders.

They thought it was a joke. In deed, to them it was a joke. This laughter told me all I needed to know about Prof. Lessig’s agenda. The objective is to tear down “this country” and build another in its place. One from which I am sure many citizens of “this country” will be banned.

Bush the Elder ramped climate study funding in 1988 from $20 million/year to over $1 billion per year by 1992….expanded by Slick Willy to $2 billion per year. All of this excess was for CARBON ENDANGERMENT FINDINGS. And as we all know. “If all you fund is findings for danger, danger is all that you will find”. The public needs to know HOW the Lesters have perverted every branch of science with climate change, sustainable energy, peak oil, GMO and fake pharma faux science funding. These are the ROOTS to this poison Lester tree.

It would be great to see this released on Smashwords or something like that!

Thanks agains for a great talk!

No matter how much all the beneficiaries think that the fact they’ve risen to the top is based solely on their own merit, there’s almost universally some other privilege involved in determining whose merit is allowed to be measured.

What can I do to as an indivdual , with a voice, a command of the English language and a computer to move us toward a funding for politics that will restore our elected officials to focus on the resolve of the concerns of the people of the Republic. What’s next or what’s been started and let me in.

Please keep us informed about where we go from here. I’ve been working to over turn the citizen united decision and really want to focus on cracking and the environment but as you said with a broken government our causes will never progress. Add my emai l to any lists yous put together.

I hope you’re ready to be the leader of a movement, because you’ve just started one. I have had a fire in me over these issues for a LONG time. It’s so nice to see a viewpoint to fix our country that doesn’t involve violent revolution; which, for the first time since the civil war, is being discussed in closed communities. At lease, it is here in Alabama (but everyone knows we’re crazy and have too many guns anyway)

I would love to devote all my time to pushing your idea for reform as well as my own. Do you know anyone that I can talk to that would show me a path forward on this activist career path? It would be really nice to not have to eat gravel and go unwashed in the street as recompense to helping the movement to reclaim our republic.

If you don’t get back to me I understand, and I wish you the best anyway. I’ll help in whatever way I am able.

Respectfully,
Adam Martin

I am a lover of the environment and can plainly see if we don’t change the way our present government works, we will never lead on this critical issue. I want to read the e-book, but you need to realize there are a LOT of us ACTIVIST Seniors that are coming from our Activist Years in the 1960′s, do not do e-book! Can’t someone make a little, regular, recycled paper book for us technologically challenged lovers of democracy? Please do take this into consideration promptly. Respectfully
