Radical democratisation

Radical democratisation, taking the principles of popular sovereignty into new spaces, from the mass media to local government and the workplace. This involves a wide range of issues from the use of the web, to the nature of technology and the design of distributed systems which provide spaces for people to contribute to projects directly, as a form of productive democracy. It also requires innovatory forms of engagement like participatory budgeting, and changes in the forms of ownership and public accounting.
