technology4democracy statement of principles

Nov 5th, 2011

-We believe in the right to self-determination of the electorate. If we’re paying for it, we should be able to have a say in it.

-We refuse to recognize representative democracies as being real democracies. In a representative democracy you get to decide who’s gonna be deciding for you. In a real democracy, you get to decide for yourself.

-We’re going to make a point about calling out the media and politicians who don’t seem to understand the difference between a democracy, and a representative democracy, and give them an education about it.

-We believe in promoting digital democracies and direct democracies over the outdated representative democracy model.

-We reject all forms of physical violence as being anti-democratic. We believe that current tools of communication, used properly, can have more of an impact than a bomb in a building.
