@robvank: One more mask. The Internet of Things is the killer app of decision making at all levels, including politics.

“It is for awakened conscience to assert the principle; events will determine the character of the answer. Ideas once rooted in conscience never die.”  Dyer D. Lum

In this short text I argue representative democracy and its model of parties and politicians needs to be replaced with a pragmatic cybernetics model balancing centralization of infrastructures and decentralization of services. Such a contemporar ysystem will have as a base of decision making the real time data streams for the four domains: body (wearables), home (location-based community), car and bike (mobility) and city (virtual communities based on 5G and current smart city applications.
