Good Morning, PVR
In an effort to encourage broader participation in the Direct Democracy concept, I plan to post a national question on the myverdict.net site. The site also offers state-level questions, which are significant electoral constituencies in the U. S. I believe Mr. Daine plans to provide for lower-level questions, as well.
I'll admit I'm guessing, but I think the concept is most likely to catch fire as a result of a heated local issue. I understand such an issue arose in a southern U. S. city a week or so ago. It resulted in a publicized mass protest. I also understand the flames were fanned on the internet, but I've no idea what the site was. If it had been myverdict.net, those who read about it would have started thinking about using the same approach in their community. If, and when, that happens the concept will gain publicity and spread quickly.
The cited instance raises a question we should consider. In that case, the internet was used to incite a mass protest. It is a short distance from a mass protest to a riot. Is it possible the Law of Unintended Consequences will confound the efforts of Direct Democracy and lead to greater chaos?
