I watched the original talk, but it doesn't answer my concerns. On the other hand it introduces an other problem: in Lessing's system the candidate who can mobilize the most donors will have the most money. The problem is: extremist are easier to mobilize (most people are lazy, the more committed someone, the more likely to give away money), so this system would skew the candidates to more extreme positions.
