Wikiparliament

Definition.
Where (and when) people really do have power over the decisions that shape their lives. Wikiparliament is where politics meets the peer society (ebay, wikipedia, amazon, ect) and power and with it responsibility are returned to society. Wikiparliament will begin outside of the current political template and through the blueprint below transfer the publics will into the outmoded parliamentary system.

Blueprint for Wikiparliament.

1. Creation.
The creation of a centralised forum for the discussion of political ideas in the 21 century, a place where both the ideal and the real can be discussed and agreed, yet people remain anonymous allowing them to speak their minds. Participants will be monitored by their peers; who can choose whether to agree or disagree with their statements. As an aside to this, a further advanced yet simple way of peer feedback, would allow users to highlight phrases they agree or disagree with (or even add their own footnotes and apply a level of agreement on a sliding scale).

2. The building of consensus
As consensus builds, and people are encouraged to share their views, there must be an outlet, some form of feedback to think tanks or parliament to re-empower people to show them that their views actually matter and dispel apathy.

3. Further Empowerment
With an established consensus and peer group, it will become possible to raise finance (from peers) to run one or a number of parliamentary representatives, who represent our real concerns rather than those perceived by the council or concerned and governed by party politics.

4. Evolution, Organic growth.
As peer groups grow, different knowledge networks will grow with elected representatives, determined by those that have bothered to concern themselves with the issues at hand in depth rather those that have been concerned with placing themselves in control of that which they have little understanding. Ultimately it may even be possible to dispose of the hierarchical structure of government replacing it with a more dispersed system of concerned citizens.
