Well, we do. How? - Bora Zivkovic
Everyone has power if you give them the power ;) - Patrick from twhirl
If I give them power? I wish.... - Bora Zivkovic
"Citizens discovered a way to find information outside of press. Using this information, those same citizens discovered a way to go directly to elected officials to exert their influence. And not listening to them always incurs a steep price at the polls later on." - Bora Zivkovic
"It is not money that will be the source of power in the future, but the strength of the community you belong to - how many people you know (and they know you) who hold the same beliefs as you and are willing to perform necessary action as needed. That is the source of power in the future. Networking, not hogging money. A large network of people will both, as a collective, have more money than a single entity, and will also need less money to achieve the goal in the first place as they can keep their elected officials hostages - as the Founders envisioned - just by being organized and vocal. - Meryn Stol
You're a visionary, Bora. - Meryn Stol
The communist in me appreciates these views. - coldbrew
I'm certainly no communist. I'm *possibly* a communitarian, but that's something wholly different. - Meryn Stol
I don't think it's either. It is the Founders' idea finally, due to technological capability, becoming a reality. You know "...of the people, for the people..." stuff. It was just not possible until now. And there will be counter-forces unwilling to relinquish power for some time to come, but if you are willing to wait a few more years....and fight for it to speed up the process.... - Bora Zivkovic
