It doesn't mean banning free speech, but banning nonpublic contact with elected officials and government decision makers. All discussions between paid advocates and goverment pple should be made public AND easily accessible.
Unpaid advocacy is NOT professional lobbying.

2-Napoleon wrote (dictated) 10-30 letters a day; he was maximally into micromanagement. While emperor, on the campaign before Austerlitz, he wrote to the governor of Genoa asking him to stop taking his mistress to the opera because of a prostitution record. Yet he did think big!
If there were no entrepreneurs and risk takers ... (I am getting idiots commenting on salaries without thinking in higher order terms.)
