Digital Democracy

Neoliberal, pseudo representative governments are dysfunctional and no one knows how to fix them. The election of two or three Democratic Party governors in the US off year elections is going to do what? Will that stop the destruction? No one trusts the old political system and its players so what do you gain? And it is nearly certain that the system will lock up and protect itself to prevent any significant change. The forces of greed own all and citizen elected governments are powerless. Who will replace the nation-states? Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft have already replaced the role of national governments with continuous interaction and educational process. Facebook has over 2 billion users making it double the size of the largest nation-state, China. Think about it. The new digital human organizations are omnipresent in many people’s lives. We can avoid dealing with a national government for days or weeks at a time but we interact with their new digital replacements many times per day. Even China‘s gigantic censorship systems are easily defeated by the population daily. Who really controls China? Beijing or Tencent? Which one do people actually need and rely on for day to day services? What will they chose if they are given the choice?
