Lessig: Obama Has Betrayed His Movement

Lawrence Lessig is a very smart cookie. And he is not happy: How to get our democracy back.

Maybe this was his plan all along. It was not what he said. And by ignoring what he promised, and by doing what he attacked (“too many times, after the election is over, and the confetti is swept away, all those promises fade from memory, and the lobbyists and the special interests move in”), Obama will leave the presidency, whether in 2013 or 2017, with Washington essentially intact and the movement he inspired betrayed.

    He has betrayed them. He was too hands off in the first year, leaving too much room for congress to throw pee at each other. He should’ve taken charge last February like he’s doing this February.
