Larry Lessig delivers a fact filled, witty talk that breaks down the current state of "the republic" and the root cause of its present corrupted state. Lessig suggests that the today's young people have the power to create the necessary change that they seek by joining in a cross partisan movement to reshape our failing government and reshape America's future.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
