Lawrence Lessig: America, Compromised

FRI, FEB 1, 2019 (59:14)

In America, Compromised Lawrence Lessig captures a snapshot of contemporary America and forms an argument on how the institutions of the American government have come to be the way they are. Throughout the book, Lessig shows that the modern problems plaguing corrupt political institutions cannot simply be blamed upon the “bad people” of society. Rather, Lessig argues that it is compromise that has brought down the American system. Image: book cover
