[ hungry-kitty ]It’s a common counter-argument. Not biting hands that feed, is about not going against the people or institutions that have allowed us to get to where we are right now. In our case it’s about not completely trashing the existing system that allowed to get to the point where we’re able to create a newer, better system.

I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t see why it would be going against the idea of digital democracy to also be honoring our roots at the same time. I don’t see why doing a system-update on our international gov-systems, could not be done without somehow acknowledging our previous existing models. And, in that sense, we would not be going against “the hand that feeds”.

  1. I would have to agree.. Bitting the hand that got us here is rather counter productive..

    Nothing here about completelyabolishing the present system.. Just a slight adjustment..

    If the hand doesn’t feed us properly whats in our best interest.. We should be able to “pipe up” or “logg on” and have our voices heard.. Maybe, in this new year, they’ll start taking options like “digital democracy” more considerarion…

  2. That would be nice, but I’m not holding my breath.

    In a sense, it’s government that is biting the hand that feeds. We’re funding their big governmental machine, but when we try to get involved in the process, they chew us up and spit us out. ( example: Canada using excessive force to crush G8 protesters ) .
