What's the solution? There isn't one. There's no perfect utopian model we can all sign up for. Just a long process of democratic engagement to create a tolerable world together. The only way it will really "work", and the only way people will really want to join is if it respects their freedom and input as well.

I don't believe we've done more than scratch the surface of democratic engagement, changing the way we've had things for the longest time. The landscape is changing, even though it might not be readily apparent to the casual observer. (We're in a 'gestation' phase, maybe?)

I don't believe the paradigm we've been content with actually works. It's more that we've become inured to its flaws and ambivalence has numbed us.

I see the only aspect of the design that can effect the change we require is us. What did the man sing?
