We live in a world where Trump, Bolsonaro, Orbán, Duterte, Erdoğan, and Johnson lead nations. This is a damning indictment of hierarchical/centralised politics and governance structures. Unless we devolve our means of exercising political agency, expect more of the same.

@aral do you have concrete ideas on how to improve democracy?


@Jonius Yeah: we devolve our systems of communication to start with to decouple our political agency from hierarchical power structures.

@aral I completely support these demands. Only difference: I'd say we need to save democracy (to remain free) and capitalism (to not become poor). Well, I also deny surveillance capitalism and neo-liberalism. That is not the only way capitalism can be established.
