Why the future of democracy is digital

Why the future of democracy is digital | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
E-voting is a logical next step, but we should not underestimate the political and social changes it will bring, says John Bercow
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

This is not where the true challenge lies. In 21st century Britain there is an expectation of openness, a need for flexibility and a greater understanding that people, the "consumers of democracy", use and do not use modern technology in a manner that suits them.


The most brilliant apps for democratic participation could be built but achieving the next step, getting people to use them and, ideally, to use them well, is a political and social challenge rather than a technological challenge. Similarly, digital tools can enhance democratic processes, but cannot fix any systemic problems there may be within those processes.


It may be that significant changes to underlying systems could be required if digital tools are to provide a more effective, dynamic and pluralistic, democracy.
