I didnt hit the key words when researching this or I would have posted my comments in the thread on ATS about "direct democracy". Here is a link to
Direct Democracy ATS thread
Seems like a good thread.
My feeling is that is mob rule favors the nations with the most people and will not stop the corruption of power.
I feel what metagovernment have started is commendable, particularly since they dont seem to be too directly pushing any agenda on anyone apart from
Even if it does not work out we need people testing different solutions if we are to move forward with the times.
I see possibilities with online polling and voting however I dont see "direct democracy" as a solution to the current set up. One of my main
problems with governments today is they will say anything to get elected and once they are in they do what they want for a few years so long as it
doesnt annoy the people too much they get away with it. I would like to see them accountable for their agendas, possibly even a new vote on changes
to agendas and other changes to the set up being introduced.
Its a difficult subject. We can see the West as positive and negative (safe but selfish for example). We have the poverty in some nations but would
us giving up what we have help them or only make us and them worse off. We need to have our freedoms to push the boundaries but when we push to far
or fast there is dire consequences.
