#mustread on the future of democracy. By someone who is actively hacking the system from within. Inspiring and provoking.

"We need more studies to see the pros and cons of active voting systems and liquid democracy models, with delegates rather than representatives, for example.

We need to do the opposite of what Russell Brand is advocating, we need to use our votes. Even if we don’t want to engage with the current broken system, we should not use that as an excuse for apathy. We should see it as an encouragement to engage in creating our own alternatives, our new co-created systems; to be creative about it and to connect. Connectivity is the key to a rapid change; but information in itself is meaningless if we don’t know how to decode it into wisdom."

Increased participation and transparency are nice, but they can not take the place of mandatory, high quality public school education in topics like civics, history, and critical reasoning.

"Liquid democracy" is what turned the German Pirate Party from a necessary, clueful force, driving discussion about a largely ignored but crucial set of topics (transparency, digital privacy), into an irrelevant, unfocused fringe group. It allowed anyone with an axe to grind to sidetrack policy discussions to their own pet agenda, depriving us of a pretty promising political force.

Also, I do not think that "fascism" means what the author thinks it means.
