Ben Cohen, activist, entrepreneur and co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company, joined us in a Google Hangout last week to discuss his involvement with the amendment movement, his bill stamping mobile — the Amend-O-Matic — what business has to gain from an amendment, how Pillsbury tried to stop Ben & Jerry’s from achieving success, and why he says that the next constitutional amendment will be the first “internet amendment.” The full interview is embedded at the bottom of this post, below two smaller excerpts for people short on time. Hat-tip to Victor Tiffany for setting up the interview and a big thanks to Ben Cohen for generously taking the time out of his busy schedule to talk with us.
On how social media combined with the Occupy movement to help persuade him to get fully involved in the movement to amend the constitution.
On the difference between small business and multinational corporations and why Main Street deserves your support.
