Who collapsed the two issues, right to choose and right to bear arms? Where does it end?
Lawrence Lessig has shown us how the political system we now employ is driven by the need to raise funds. In exchange, funders, not voters, have politician’s ears. He also points us to one of the big funding rackets: passion points that move people to give money, even money they cannot afford to give.
The stronger the polarization, the bigger the cash cow. For example, right now, guns and abortion are colliding to produce the biggest payoffs for politicians, lobbyists and dark money we’ve seen in our lifetimes. Most people have strong opinions on these two issues. Political operatives use our emotions on these issues to raise money and fund their future campaigns. Why would they want to solve anything?
Where does it end? Let’s add some sanity to the conversation and discuss, women and men together, what action we can take to make this mischief stop. Share your views here and join LUNCH WITH LOUDEN today, 12 Noon PST, 3PM EST at 646-929-2495 orhttp://tobtr.com/s/4218301
