Wow. What an amazing talk! I was blown away. And though I was clear that Citizens United was a decision that needs to be overturned, I wasn't as clear until tonight about why a Constitutional amendment was the best way to go.
Below is a video of a fairly similar talk he gave several months ago.
To my way of thinking, this issue ties into at least these several of our UU Principles:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person (1st Principle);
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations (2nd Principle); and
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large (5th Principle).
