e-democracy again and again

December 2, 2005 at 4:29 am Leave a comment

the strangeness of democracy, and perhaps one of the reasons why war
has been in decline since it began to become the government of most of the world,
is that you find yourself strangely connected to choices and events you wouldn’t
other wise. Here in Hong Kong a December 4th march for democracy is going on,
but what if you didn’t have any type of representive government? what then
would you feel? It’s often argued that people as a whole are to fickle to make the
right decissions to feed themselves, which may or may not be true, but they’re
not really the ones making the decissions. Most people are electing people to make
them for them, what if we just directly made the choices in our governments? if
we just had a big wiki on which the law is written? I’m of the opinion that
be opening up debate to the thousands would probably result in better laws.
