|DISCUSSION ON HOW TO PROMOTE DIRECT (TRUE) DEMOCRACY|
WDDM Forum : Proposals and Initiatives
Any member can post here proposals concerning WDDM (its function, mission, goals, organization).
I am cut to the quick. My name has been misspelled. It is a matter of no consequence.
I'd like to mention a few points concening www.myverdict.net.
Firstly, thank you for mentioning it in your post. There are in fact 244 countries represented, which, in fact, is every inhabited country in the world. When I set it up, I had done no research into the subject and had no idea of the vast number of sites concerning DD that already existed. It was not my intention to try and compete with anybody. It transpires that I have built a forum, though it does not work in the same way as most of the other forums around.
The idea behind myverdict.net, is to canvas the majority opinion, on every issue, at every level, for every community. (I could have gone to the lowest administrative level in every country but tiredness and lack of time prevented this.)
Once the majority opinion is known, a community can demand that their representative support that opinion. If the majority opinion is not known, then said representative can can support his own opinion or that of a lobbyist. Not really what we're all after.
To date, I can report that the site appears to be working quite well. Users seem in general, to be taking it seriously and there has been no abuse so far.
It is about to be expanded to encompass a broader range of discussion, not necessarily accompanied by voting.
One important addition is, that now users are able to post arguments and vote on questions raised in areas other than their own. For example a user in Canada might have an opinion on a UK question which enhances the discussion. Or an ex-pat Australian, living in Mexico might want to say something about his native country.
Gross results are available to general browsers from the homepage and registered users will see results specific to their area of residence via 'mypage'.
I'd like to give my encouragement and support to all sites striving in the direct democracy genre and will attempt to post appropriately where possible. Thanks again for the mention and good luck.
