If you have "no place to go," come here!

Has anybody been able to figure out what Larry Lessig wants the money for?

I see the pledge page. I checked the FAQ. I read the Moyers interview.

He wants "fundamental reform." Where's the beef? Did I miss it? Did I not get the memo?

snarky or not, that's pretty much what it sounded like to me after reading through your links.

shorter lessig:

we're going to use big money and secret donors to influence elections in order to get big money and secret donors to stop influencing elections. you little people can send us money too, but we're not going to tell you ahead of time how much money we will ultimately need or which elections we're planning to influence. but you can trust us!
