In this clip, commentator Bill Moyers answers a question frequently posed to him by viewers -- "How can ordinary people fight 'Citizens United'?"


The controversial Supreme Court ruling enshrines the notion of "corporate personhood" into law, giving companies many of the same rights and protections as U.S. citizens, allowing businesses to pour unlimited amounts of money into influencing political contests.

Moyers urges viewers to believe in themselves as agents of change, to stick together and understand that there is real power in numbers. He quotes an African proverb, "If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together."

He concludes by giving contact information for two organizations fighting the "Citizens United" ruling, Move to Amend and Free Speech for People.
