A great speech that all young people should watch.
Opportunity: looks a lot like hard work! I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than.
Being Sexy: The sexiest thing in the entire World is being really smart, and being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is just crap.
Living Live: When you grow up you tend to get told that the World is the way that it is and that your life is to live your life inside the World and try not to get in too much trouble and maybe get an education, and get a job and make some money and have a family. But life can be a lot broader than that when you realize one simple thing and that is that everything around us that we call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own things you can build your own life that other people can live in so build your life don’t live one…build one!

One of my favorite scenes from The Newsroom is this. It discusses the repeal of Glass Steagall. The one piece that is not in the clip is why it was repealed.

You can also find an essay on the subject on the OpenSecrets Blog.
