Good Morning, Alexander
re: Currently most people ARE LEMMINGS (sometimes labeled
Yeah! Or, at least, they're called that by those bright folks who are
so much smarter than the rest of us. Unfortunately for this discussion,
I'm one of those lemmings or zombies you look down on.
re: I think they will become "some kind of party", by the
fact that those people "work" together on a daily basis
and they get to know each other and they synchronize
their thoughts over time, while people in every day life
engage in other things and some might start to not be
strongly in touch with whomever they support.
That will probably happen. The question is how Frome's town council, a
group of people who have demonstrated their awareness of the dangers of
party politics, can devise and enact an electoral method that includes
"people in every day life"?
re: The best approach would be to upgrade all the things
with digital technology - because if you look beyond
"technology", what it is is just an opportunity of
increased connectedness of everyone with everyone else
at all times ...
Politics is concerned with the relationships between people. How can
Frome's town council use technology to increase the connectedness of the
"people in every day life" that populate their community? They
(probably) already have the entire voting population on their computers.
What can they do to help "people in every day life" participate in
meeting the needs of the community?
