Our technology has evolved to the point where we no longer need to elect the 1% to create, vote on, and pass bills for the people. We now have the ability to set up a direct, participatory democracy over the internet where the people create, research and vote on bills. There would be a page for the earth, where folks from across the planet were involved and then pages increasing in locality – country, state, city, community – where only the folks in that region are involved. Everyone would get an extra day off from work to spend time in this direct democracy. Electing the 1% to run government for us is an analog technology in a digital age. This could be a unifying goal of the Occupy movement, and it would draw in a large, new crowd who did not originally support the movement.
