Let’s skip ahead 20 years. When we could realistically electronically authenticate every UK citizen available to vote… What changes?
Do we all vote more frequently, with the same apathy as now, with the same care as a Facebook update or would we all take it more seriuosly?
Imagine we could all adjust the budget to what we want (like the Delib budget simulator), every year, on masse, we choose how we’d like to apportian the state budget simply by moving some sliders or choosing which projects we’d like to invest in.
It could be, every eligibale UK citizen gets to pick from a handful of projects to spend the council budget. Each eligable project having a kickstarter video, page and proposed budget.
It may not be sensible to give over the whole budget to every under, mis and over informed voter. But it would be a start to a truer democracy. It’s scary right, some power directly actaully in peoples’ little sweaty hands.
