Doris Haddock on Technology


Internet creates people-powered democracy

While we work-and we must continue to work-to weaken the unfair influence of the rich and the powerful in our elections, we must also look for ways to strengthen the ability of ordinary people to have a meaningful voice. I think we are seeing that in the Internet and its fundraising capacity. It is opening a new era in our politics, both in terms of communicating information and fund raising, and it looks a lot more like democracy than does the $2,000 a plate chicken dinner and the $200,000 corporate donation. I hope you all will give a little bit of money and other energy to your favorite candidates, and the Internet offers easy ways for you to do so. If we all give a little to the champions of our values, then a people-powered democracy-the only real kind of democracy-can have a fighting chance against the chicken eaters.
