This is cool, thanks for this story. I'm certainly registering with them. I think with todays technology we're ready to do away with the ugly current system of representation were we merely get to choose our dictator and get a system that more reflects a real democracy.

Think about it, you wanna trust a political party centred on the net?, the net is a tool not an answer , did the majority view hold sway when they nailed some guy Jesus to a cross?, we nee the human interaction element during this current election, ?see before you buy? and lets be honest, Kevin Rudd is a bit of a smarmy git, (John Howard?s not that much better).

Is more trustworthy than a community is a very authoritarian anti-democratic viewpoint.

Committee made up of random individuals should have the right of seniority over all aspects of all current societies actions is a bit of a ?****? , do you get a panel of electricians preforming brain surgery?, how about a round table of fashion designers designing a nuclear reactor?, ( glowing green IS the new black darling!}.
Modern western society needs a moderator, to separate the ?lets all be vegans!? from the ?lets torture chickens in battery farms?, someone wins, someone whines , that?s life.
Also a single person is more trustworthy ON SOME ISSUES than the community, examples ?, life savers, volunteer carers for the elderly, meals on wheels, the police, what about the Salvos? , in our world there are individuals we trust because they ask nothing in return, John Howard may be a little boring but do you agree he is more ?trustworthy? than Rudd and his strip cub visit?, or Clinton with his ?I did not have relations with that women?, on some issues I trust him on others I?ld watch him closely.

*note, my head hurts after this,

A strip club visit makes him more trustworthy, it shows he's human. Wink
I disagree society needs a moderator. You need an educator rather. Someone who's able to explain the issues and make sure everyone who's voting understands.

I say moderator, you say educator,

In reply to: Well...

I say moderator, you say educator, both are interchangeable, as to the more "human" vist to the strip club, no, don't agree mate, if your in the public eye and have the public's trust visting a strip club on goverment time is a no no strip clubs that run by the required laws of the land are fine, most are holes and de humanising toilets that make my skin crawl.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
