Direct Democracy in the UK http://www.paparty.co.uk/
Should the UK people choose to invoke UN Article 21 to legitimately reform to direct democracy now without revolution or, should the People's Administration win the next UK general election, a new administration will be formed instead of a new government. All party manifestos will be merged into an on-line database and the people will become the decision-makers regarding all policy implementation [including their own] via a national on-line voting system. Majority-voted policy will then be implemented by a reformed Parliament under the People's Administration and so through direct democracy, the people will govern the people.
With direct democracy via web and telephony, [mis]representation by Parliament is no longer required!
In 2011, Iceland became the world's first direct democracy!
With direct democracy and without centralised decision-making, the politicians, the media, the religions, the non-elected lords and consultants, the corporates, the banks and hidden organisations of any nature can not manipulate the power any longer, as the power will be with every individual.
Whilst we have the ability to make choices, we are free and we have power. With our existing freedom, we have chosen to empower others and we have got what we voted for. Now we can use our freedom to vote for self-empowerment via direct democracy.
It would be far more strategic, efficient and democratic for any current single-issue/minority protest group to vote for a reform to direct democracy now, than it would be to continue with indirect action.
We are musicians and political activists [not politicians] who have registered the People's Administration with the Electoral Commission as a mainstream UK party with the ability and the architecture to implement a reform to direct democracy - should the majority vote for direct democracy now or in the next UK general election.
Direct Democracy has already been proven successful:
We've been using direct democracy for years to decide the winners of TV programs such as The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent, Dancing on Ice and Big Brother etc. We do this every week by web and telephone and we do it at vast expense in both time and money.
Using direct democracy to decide upon every aspect of our lives as well as how we affect others around the world, will cost us no additional money and, substantially less time than we spend voting merely upon issues of entertainment.
Direct Democracy via the People's Administration will be far more inclusive and far more democratic, especially with regards to the less physically-able and the blind.
We believe that social unity can only be achieved with direct democracy, where the UK electorate can create, propose and vote upon all policy implementation.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our legal argument regarding voting protocols have been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration does not have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now!
An evolved culture of politics
Within a direct democracy, the police and the law courts will be enforcing truly democratic laws as determined by the people - substantially increasing social cohesion and, UK armed forces will not be able to go to war without majority public consent. Through the People's Administration, both sectors will finally be protected from government abuse.
The People's Administration was formed in early 2010 only after politicians and party leaders [including David Cameron] with whom the People's Administration founder has met and worked with offering voluntary independent consultation, rejected pro-democratic policy ideas despite them being known to have over a 90% approval rate when put to voter groups by the People's Administration.
The People's Administration recognises that the political axis has rotated and is now drawn between the people of all countries uniting through direct democracies, and the minority who seek to control. The people of the world have more in common with each other than they do with their own 'leaders' - who have more in common with each other than they do with their own people. The People's Administration's architecture for direct democracy has been promoted since 1998 and is now being studied as a template by various groups in other countries.
Economics: The People's Administration believes that 45 million eligible voters advised by the Institute of Fiscal Studies via direct democracy, is better than 3 heads advised by their party donors!
The previous two global financial collapses both led directly to world wars. Unlike the previous two world wars, thermo-nuclear WW3 will leave no functioning environment. Our representative democracies and our markets are now thinking and behaving in exactly the same ways as they did in the lead-up to both of the previous two world wars and it is no coincidence. A global reform to direct democracy is now the only solution.
Capitalism: Simply planting a seed and maintaining its growth through to it becoming an edible food is capitalism and it's fair and it's sustainable if we democratise and optimise [as in nature] instead of maximise!
Crime: Through the People's Administration and direct democracy, we could choose to increase the economy whilst decreasing crime rates by legalising black markets and enhancing prisoner rehabilitation programmes - particularly Restorative Justice programmes.
Parliament's 'revolutionary' idea to make 'Digital Britain' the world leader in IT is to upgrade network infrastructure with new cables [at taxpayer expense]. The People's Administration's idea to make Digital Britain the world leader in electronic communications is to upgrade Parliament with Electronic Direct Democracy.
The 'mistakes' that led to hundreds of voters across the UK being denied their right to vote in 2010 would not have happened if voting by web and telephone in a direct democracy via the People's Administration had replaced the expensive, inconvenient and out-dated method of voting via mismanaged polling stations.
The cost of the AV referendum in 2011 was £250 M. The People's Administration estimates that if administered on-line, the entire referendum could have been ran at a cost of less than £10 M - further demonstrating the coalition's absolute complacency towards technology, the UK economy, the UK electorate, and direct democracy.
In 2010 [and years after Iran, Afghanistan and Mongolia], British 'democracy' finally took to television with the leaders debates - confirming how retarded British 'democracy' actually is.
In 2011, Iceland became the world's first direct democracy!
The Indian Government has also declared that it wants direct democracy and their IT infrastructure is rapidly expanding.
We are no longer in the technological age. We are now in the Information age and so how can we be world leaders in the IT sector while David Cameron and Parliament's representative democracy prevent evolution to direct democracy?
