The Netizen: Wave New World
an interview of Alvin Toffler by Wired
(our site's interview review)
Wired interviews Alvin Toffler. Among other points:
The Constitution needs its structure reconsidered.
Newt Gingrich was right about devolution from the center downwards to state and local government, etc.
And we need semidirect democracy with both direct (Internet facilitated?) and representative democratic actions.
Newt was the only one in Congress thinking 30 years ahead.
We need years of discussions on the Net and elsewhere about alternative political structures—we need distributed intelligence from a million brains for this.
