- The strongest right a parliament has is budget law - for that taxes are compulsory.
- There is a growing demand for civic participation.
- There is dolefulness with politics, political processes and the political personell.
- Plebiscites are a complex instrument.
- Bundling and balance of interests by political parties and the parliament are necessary and have to be kept - amongst others due to efficiency aspects.
digitaletat - as a ring-fenced tax - is an efficient instrument to achieve direct democracy:
- Every citizen (natural person) is allowed to distribute 2% of his or her overall yearly tax payments to a pre-defined set of buckets (those being on a high level of abstraction).
- This will be only practical by utilizing modern and secure information technology.
- It will be critical, that those buckets are sufficiently abstract and not too many - and that they stay like that over time.
- Examples of possible structures of those buckets (increasing complexity):
- The n governmental departments - citizens will directly influence the budget of ministries.
- A set of topics discussed by parliament.
- A set of longterm projects discussed by parliament.
- A set of community driven topics and projects.
