You've got to hear this professor

Dear MoveOn member,

It's no secret: Billionaires are destroying our democracy. And if we don't fix it soon, it will be too late. The Super PAC era ends soon, or it never ends at all.

The good news: Lawrence Lessig (Harvard Law professor, activist, and TED star) has a plan to end it—a plan so crazy it just might work. He's launching a new Super PAC . . . to elect a Congress committed to abolishing Super PACs for good.

The story behind his plan will blow your mind. And his vision for how to get this done might just restore your hope in the possibility for change. If you've ever been concerned about money in politics, you've got to hear this podcast.

Almost everyone agrees that the American political system is corrupted by money, but almost nobody believes that we can do anything about it. Lawrence Lessig felt the same way—until a 20-year-old activist and computer prodigy named Aaron Swartz challenged him to think bigger. You won't be able to forget the beautiful, wrenching story of what happened next. And when you find yourself telling friends about this podcast, you'll already be part of the solution.

Thanks for all you do.
