The international channel BBC Newsnight makes a report on < a title="Democracy OS" href="http://democracyos.org/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Democracia OS, an Argentine political movement that wants to bring technology to the center of the debate political. They have developed collaborative software that allows citizens to create and participate in debates. But the most revealing thing is that it allows you to vote for those proposals that you are most satisfied with: YES, NO, ABST. It’s that simple and that revolutionary. The closest thing to democrappcia that this application allows us to intuit are the multiple Swiss referendums that take place day in and day out in the Swiss country. In Spain, Podemos used the mobile tool Appgree to favor the votes of his militancy during his constituent congress but there have been few more attempts and none binding.
The Internet has invaded all the social, economic and cultural spheres of our modern society, allowing access to information, bringing culture closer, favoring economic exchanges and consolidating social movements. Social networks invade, mobilize us, bring us together and inform us. Online stores help us buy. The digital signature gives us personality and allows us to access restricted information and authorize operations. In reality, there is only one space still virgin: the universal direct vote in political decisions at all levels. That is still reserved for a few representatives who interpret our interests. Is democrAppcia really an alternative to the current representative model? We bet that the shots will go that way and that, sooner rather than later, we will all be co-participants in a more direct way in the management of the common good.
