"Today the enemy is not called Empire or Capital. It's called Democracy."Alan Badiou
We think representational democracy is a thing of the past. Its days are numbered. Few people in so-called Western Democracies can even be bothered to vote anymore. Indeed, representation can no longer be said to be representative.
We say it's time to embrace the internet era. The internet presents an unprecedented opportunity to engage our generation, in seizing the future and making a difference. Let people get involved directly in decision-making, let people decide what's best for them.
We, digital natives, web-enthusiasts, anarcho-activists and young european visionaries, strongly believe in the active rule of the Internet in the democratic process.
With this petition, we are demanding the European Parliament:
Desists, with immediate effect, from all its activities. We don't want to continue paying the bill of an expensive and bureaucratic machine for something we can do better ourselves from the comfort of our armchairs.
Transforms democracy into a real user-centric experience. We declare that representational democracy no longer works, nor is effective.
Creates a brand new click-based model of democracy to replace the outmoded one. Political parties are every day more distant from the will of the people, and this is why they have begun to use social media for promotion. We want to take this further, to the core of the political process using the most advanced Web 2.0 technologies.
Sign this petition now! Let the people decide! We demand the internet for democracy!
