Typical western attitude, "There's no way out but to SHOOT OUR WAY OUT." There are other forms of protest, you know. As for Lessig, he's ideologically wed to his effort, so there's no helping him. All of those funds will still be a colossal waste, though. Pity he can't see that.
I don't offer any solutions, because I'm wary of being targeted by your increasingly control-hungry government. Suffice to say, intelligent people will come up with their own plans. Perhaps the easiest way is to drop out of the collective insanity altogether.
I pity your country really, its sad to see something that was once so great start to head down the road of despotism.
