A call to restore the Republic and dismantle the Empire from "The American Ruling Class", a dramatic-documentary-musical starring Lewis Lapham.

Lapham edited Harper's Magazine for over twenty years and is currently the editor of the new history journal Lapham's Quarterly.

In this "alternate ending" to the film, a recent Yale grad is gently hectored into joining the cause of human emancipation and coming to the rescue of an endangered ideal: democracy in America.

Words and music by Lucas Revolution, produced by Libby Handros, directed by John Kirby. The tremendously talented kids are from the musical theater program TADA! in New York City. And yes, that's the great Pete Seeger in the beginning of the clip; there's much more from him in the body of the film.
