About doing public good as a private citizen.
Former President Bill Clinton (SFS'68) told an audience in Georgetown's historic Gaston Hall that being a good citizen in the 21st century "requires every thoughtful person to try to do some public good...We are on an unsustainable path to the future...the world is awash in too much in inequality and unsustainability." He ends with "If you want to serve you must begin with the stories." Published on May 2, 2013
After Bill's interview with Saru Jayaraman on food workers fight for a living wage, he spoke about the two events this week -- one in Albany, NY and the other in Washington, DC -- that have made the fight to save democracy from big money, already an uphill battle, even harder.
In Albany, Governor Cuomo and legislators killed a commission investigating political corruption, failed to pass campaign finance reform and gave tax breaks to the rich in their annual budget. In Washington, the Supreme Court struck down overall contribution limits on how much individual donors can give to candidates, parties and PACs.
In this clip, Bill offers his reactions to this week's events: "The prevailing myth in America has been that the rich have a right to buy more homes, more cars, more gizmos, vacations and leisure. But they don't have the right to buy more democracy. The Supreme Court has just laid that myth to rest, and the new gilded age roars in triumph."

The onus falls on government to give us the systems, incentives and regulatory frameworks to enable sustainable development. We hope to see a sense of shared vision and objectives by governments at Rio+20, but historically, governments have shown a lack of courage.
