No Sharism, No Democracy 2.0

Just watched the "Super Tuesday" gala via many ways, the Twitter+Google mashup is the coolest one. But after reading Richard Dreyfuss's comments on how to teach our kids on the concep of "Democracy" and how to foster the love , I realized that the real democracy is still a long way to go. That' is how to maximize the enlightment of "collective intelligence" to cover all human brains.

There are still silent majority in our world( even in those so-called democratic countries) to eclipse the value of democracy. But with the longtail of sharing with different kinds of social applications, human's intelligence is possible to be aggregated to upgrade the established democratic system. We can call it Democracy 2.0.  We can all see the changes  in the new presidency bids 2008 in US, as well in Taiwan and other more wired countries.

Twitter's "Super Tuesday" experiment is cool, yet to improve in two directions: firstly, more inclusive to enable people to express in such a micro-way; secondly, to aggregate such intelligence and merge into the future design of democratic system.  Twitter is killer app because it amplifies the sharing mechanism from explicit sharing to subtle sharing. It works just like the membrane to exchange materials in between cells. Sharing of such nano-sized memes can be easily adopted by users to open their mind to connect them with the social voice space.  Those with such tendency of sharing can understand the return of sharing step by step.  It's a kind of spiritual practice I called "Sharism".

Sharism, then, plays very important role inside people's social tendency. In the presidency racing, people were actually reluctant to vote or express because of their weary of the procedures and results. In democracy 2.0, people were enlightened to share their opinions. And if they found their any opinions are collected and respected, they will be encouraged to participate further steps.  So Sharism fosters a continuum of participation of the democratic system, even effective after the voting with its open-end power.

Without considering such spirit in democratic system redesign, I'm afraid, the more problems will emerge in the next decade over the current democratic system around the world. The emergence of second super power won't just be a utopia, but a driven force to change the world. The news about a Chinese former professor set up a new political organization called "Chinese Netizen Party" won't be just April Fool as well.
