Reed Elsevier Joins Mass Exodus From ALEC

Reed Elsevier joins a mass corporate exodus from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), bringing the total number of corporations that have cut ties with the controversial organization to ten. Reed Elsevier is the parent company of Elsevier, which is one of the largest academic publishing companies in the world. It publishes about 2,000 academic journals and other information-related services, including Lexis Nexis and several scientific journals.

Reuters reported that Reed Elsevier announced on Thursday that it resigned its board seat and dropped its membership with ALEC.

Almost no one knew what ALEC was 7 months ago; it was not part of the conversation.

Maybe we can finish the job in my lifetime.

It would be so awesome to see what the collective of human beings can do when given an honest and real maximum positive constructive environment to evolve in.
