The Political System Doesn't Work For Most Of Us, So Let's Change It
Huffington Post UK
Democracy means 'government by the many'. Britain is governed by the few. That's 'oligarchy'.
George Panayiotou's insight:

 

 

Could technology make a direct form of democracy in the UK a reality? E-democracy should face the ever increasing "apathy" which is nothing more than a well informed and direct decision of the people not to get involved in a political process which they feel totally marginalised. The author is right to suggest an "alternative" method of political praxis. Britain has been the focal point of political and social reform. The concept of the new model democracy introduces a new political telos in our everyday life. The UK political system may be once more the pioneering force behind a new approach to a universal democratic system by empowering people.

New Model Democracy

New Model Democracy | AS Government and Politics: Governing the UK | Scoop.it
The New Model Democracy is a political system in which ordinary people govern themselves without politicians.
George Panayiotou's insight:

 

Could a contemporary version of an Athenian Democracy be a reality in our age? This article goes on to suggests ways on how new model democracy may work in our ever increasing globalised age. Although it can be suggested that there are limitations on the practicalities of this approach it can also be argued that it offers a new fresh insight of a political praxis.
