"The Internet is the most fantastic tool ever brough into being to make things right and to fix our democracy," Gore told the SXSW crowd. "We can use it. It is going to happen. But how long? It depends on whether feel passionate about it and get involved."

"Our democracy has been hacked," Gore began. "It no longer works to serve the best interests of the people of this country."
