The most important single thing that needs to be done today is to open governmental and think tank web sites to comments from the public.
Amoxicillin Kidney, Laughably, I have seen many think tanks and governmental policy organisations trumpeting the benefits of open government and e-democracy yet their web sites have little or no interactivity.
They should practice what they preach!
However, there is enormous resistance among many MPs, Local Authority Councillors, Governmental organisations and even think tanks to any involvement from the public.
Elected representatives all too often seem to take the view that, once the electorate has voted, the elected representatives should be left to get on with the job without being bothered by the British public.
Think tank members seem to think that only the great and good can make a sensible argument.
Governmental consultation systems are hierarchical, exclusive and unauditable by contributers.
Even Governmental Departments often just don’t bother to reply to difficult questions.
Letters to MPs and Councillors go unanswered, especially if they involve complicated issues.
The fact is that the systems of democratic procedure are weighted in favour of those that have the power or money to lobby whereas ordinary people, however strong their arguments, have little direct say or influence.
No wonder there is voter apathy when so little regard is paid to public comments.
However, it has to be said that, with the present systems, there would be massive inefficiency and duplication, if all comments and communications were given detailed answers by Councillors, MPs and Governmental Departments.
Systems therefore need to be set up to enable wiki style knowledge bases alongside legislative discussion forums which openly include MPs, Councillors, lobby groups and the public.
Open source software has show us the way to organise this!
Let’s create a society where it is the quality of the argument that wins the debate and all legislation is forensically analysed in public by the best minds of our time (elected or not).
Open e-Democracy and the ‘collective intelligence’ of the British people are the best way to put the Great back in Britain.
Let’s get started now!
What do you think. Your comments are welcomed.
Bye for now
