The fight against corruption is the fight for the soul of our democratic republic

Posted by Charles II on January 11, 2015

In which I hold forth about corruption, the central role of fighting corruption in the writing of the Constitution, and the intellectual background for that as developed by Zephyr Teachout, former gubernatorial candidate. See here.

I think I have been talking for almost 20 years about why the real fight is not so much left vs. right as corrupt vs. anti-corrupt. Glad Teachout did the serious research to show that this is actually in the minutes of the Constitutional Convention.

      Ironically, you write a diary that covers serious topics relevant to changing things and you get two recs on DK. Write a diary saying that 24% of Americans are willing to call themselves “liberal” (up from 19% a decade ago), and you get over 100 recs.
