Lester Is More
This is a truth, so you'd think, that people of all political sensibilities could get behind. It's a bipartisan failing that it is the way it is. I'm not sure I share the professor's optimism, though, because, as the Tea Party teaches us, it's way too easy for the powers that be to bamboozle people into acting against their own interests by waving red flags of distraction in front of them. To get it right, people would have to elect representatives willing to take it on; and in enough numbers to make it happen. But unless the country follows my fanciful suggestion, it'll never happen; because the aggregation of the paranoid and mindless in just a few states is enough to ensure that nothing will change.
Bad as it already is, it'll only get worse.
