Lawrence Lessig supports Elizabeth Warren for President

Lessig recently endorsed Warren for President, noting only she can inspire change in our corrupt oligarchic system. Hillary is just part of the machine that will perpetuate it. Here's an excerpt of his announcement. He'll follow up with an in-depth speech on his reasons for this support on April 20.

"For the thing that she speaks so powerfully about — a rigged system — is rigged precisely because of the corruption caused by the way we fund campaigns. [...] She—and, I believe, she alone—could also galvanize the movement that we’ll need if the next president of the United States is to have a prayer of actually taking on this the hardest, most important issue of our generation — because only by solving this can we solve anything else."
