This work refer to Circle Book we have been using
For your 4th journal entry (Weeks 8/9), presuming you’ve read through Book 2, Part 2 (pages will vary depending your edition of the book – it might be p. 466) ponder all of the following:
- At the Concept Kingdom meeting, where they are discussing how to improve voter participation to 100%, Mae puts forth, “So why not require every voting-age citizen to have a Circle account?” And then follows it up with “So why can’t we require them to vote?….you register them automatically and then when election day comes around you make sure they vote.” (This idea is eventually released as Demoxie.) How would you feel if voting authentication were done and mandated through an Internet service like Facebook or Google or Twitter – and you prevented from using any parts of those systems until you had voted? Do you think it would cause elections (don’t just think presidential – consider all the down-ballot elections, including weed board and dog catcher) to happen differently? In theory The Circle’s TruYou system would prevent illegal voting, but do consider breaches in your response, because there is a way around everything.
- At the same meeting Stenton discusses how the concept of Demoxie could put government out of business by going directly to the people – “perfect democracy” is a term used. Later on, Mae ponders how much money could be saved if there were no campaigns of middlepeople (i.e. Congress) and how that money could be used for health care or education. Although the question was a test run for Demoxie, and only for Circlers, the collective voted for a drone strike on a terrorist mastermind. What are your thoughts on that? Do you feel that current politicians might be using social media to reach out more directly to their constituents?
- What are your thoughts on the Aspirant program’s innovations SeeYou and NeighborWatch?
- Mae uses the SoulSearch program to locate Mercer. How do you feel about what happens?
It’s the same “Circle book” version we used last week. do you still have it?
