KiwiNZ:KieranReid: I've always thought that the ideal government would be something like:
1) Republic independent state (rule by the people under a founding constitution, promoting human rights, privacy and freedom of everything)
2) Combined with an e-democracy (laws directly voted on and proposed by electorate via internet)
3) Combined with a technocracy (so government representatives would not be economists, businessmen and lawyers, but rather: top experts in relevant fields like engineering, medicine, computer science, sociology, agricultural science, mathematics, statistics etc...; selected by how expert and knowledgeable they are in their field, rather than being voted in on personality)
E-Democracy no thanks , wait hang on we could use Kiosks they are secure.
Fair opinion, security all depends on implementation though. Was thinking more like website+app for regular citizen direct voting on laws, and official opinion polls for anyone who wanted to contribute using "something" like RealMe login and 2step verification or similar.
