Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, It's worrying that some people, including MPs, seem to be quickly moving to positions of pro e-petitions or anti e-petitions before anybody really understands what exactly is being discussed.
It would be even more worrying if e-petitions were equated to e-democracy when the reality is probably that e-petitions are merely a tool or sub system to quantify the extent of a particular view within an overall e-democratic system.
At the moment we are, sort of, at the feasability stage. We know that the Internet offers enormous possibilities to enable much more public participation which could lead to better policy decisions.
We also know, because certain e-petitions have already proved popular, 30mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, that the public are interested in policy discussion and this is a valuable step forward.
We know too that some people enjoy being silly and subverting systems and that any e-democratic system must include effective moderation sub systems.
But perhaps now we need to start defining exactly what we want the system to do so the system we create is robust and achieves all it's objectives.
For example, 40mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, what are the fundamental democratic principles we are trying to service with the e-democracy system?
Here we have an opportunity because e-democracy is about discussion so why not use e-democracy to discuss the fundamental principles?
Why not have a Downing Street e-democracy Magna Carta Wiki to discuss first principles?
Could the first principle to discuss be something like:
'Every citizen has the right to contribute constructively to policy decisions about how the society in which they live is organised.'
To me, this principle seems obvious. To the MP that suggested Hitler would have loved e-petitions, it could be heresy, Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant india. It would be nice if he would explain 'in this place' whether he would support this fundamental Magna Carta e-democracy principle and, 750mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, if not, why not.
It would also be nice if the mandarins in the Civil Service would step in and tidy up the drafting of the principle. Perhaps, 20mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, using their specialist expertise, Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant uk, they could suggest principles arising out of this principle and so on.
Then, I'm sure lawyers, philosophers, 200mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, engineers and many others might also have something to add from their own points of view and specialisms.
No doubt, 500mg Canadian Drug Store Acomplia Rimonabant, as the argument structures got more complicated, the computer experts would probably also start coming up with iterative computing solutions to keep the system going and growing efficiently. Indeed, they would probably need their own sub forum to discuss these specialist issues.
In conclusion, if we focus on defining the fundamental principles of e-democracy and ensure all can be included in the debate, I believe the necessary supporting systems will follow naturally.
I can't wait to see it all happening and get involved in the debate.
