Some very good points & interesting reading, Thanks
I'm researching Direct Democracy whilst designing & writing a White Paper on a DD Framework that I'm hoping to present to www.jedem.org...
This will be my third itteration of design. I actually had a trial forum running on the Web for technical tests, the latest version is called the tDDE
(transitional Decision Discovery Engine) & could be described as a Meritocratic, Technocratic Direct Democracy Forum with feedback loops to accumulate
(Karma) points enabling member & proposal ascention through multi layered rooms within single disciplines (Transport, Education......Local Region)
What some people have to remember is that they have a preconceived idea of what a DD Forum would look like, but utilizing simplicity, transparency,
technology, etc. the end product may work completely differently!!.
The balls are up in the air when it comes down to designing a DD Forum Framework, there are many innovative ways to design something that minimizes
the impact of issues like uninformed opinion, mob rule, collusion for personal gain etc.
Designed well, we could knock the spots off any previous forms of Governance!
