The Rules of Democracy (Paperback)
Coming Soon - Preorder Now
The world can be run better. Democracy is the most effective way to take back control over decisions that impact on people's lives. But democracy must evolve following a Global Technological Revolution which has increased fears that global trade and immigration threaten our identity, that we face environmental ruin, and that cyber-criminals and Big Tech can do as they please, unchecked, all made worse by COVID-19. This book presents a roadmap for more accountable democracy locally, nationally and internationally. Marcial Bragadini Boo proposes updating rules, so politicians are better held to account, public services improve, and people contribute to their communities too. New rules of democracy may help find solutions to global problems and ensure everyone is fairly represented at the decision-making table.
