The consensus-building technology that will be incorporated into the platform of the Global Social Network for Voters will enable voters to overcome the traditional inability of political parties and legislative bodies to resolve conflicts and prevent the stalemates that result from this inability.
This fundamental shift in the way democracies and political parties function will result from the network's tools and services inherent motivation of large scale consensus-building by voters across partisan lines. That's because this consensus-building is the most effective and reliable way to win elections. Voter-controlled political parties, voting blocs and electoral coalitions whose members are willing to compromise and reconcile diverse and divergent priorities into transpartisan legislative agendas will be able to grow the largest electoral bases through which they will be more likely to elect their candidates than traditional parties.
The Global Social Network for Voters comprises 5 technological components:
This computer-based system comprises agenda setting, consensus-building and political organizing tools enabling voters to form online voting blocs, political parties, and electoral coalitions; set transpartisan legislative agendas across ideological and partisan lines; form winning transpartisan electoral bases; elect candidates of their choice to enact their agendas; hold incumbent lawmakers electorally accountable for their legislative actions.
The purpose of this online multiparty game of electoral strategy is to teach players how to use the agenda setting, consensus-building and political organizing tools of the Interactive Voter Choice System, attract Millennial generation game-playing voters to the network, and generate revenues.
The Global Social Network for Voters will unify voters across the ideological and partisan spectrum by enabling them to join forces online to set common transpartisan legislative agendas and build transpartisan voting blocs, parties and coalitions that can grow large enough to win elections.
Large numbers of voters will be able to search and evaluate voluminous databases of information for incorporation into legislation they devise.
Proof of Concept
The Global Social Network for Voters will integrate into a single platform the full spectrum of activities that voters and political parties around the world conduct offline and increasingly online.
In addition, the network will enable voters to engage in vital democracy-building activities that they cannot conduct in traditional political parties, especially creating transpartisan consensus-building political parties, voting blocs, and electoral coalitions capable of overcoming the inherent divisiveness of traditional parties. One of the primary goals of the network is to unite voters, in contrast to those that divide voters into hostile camps, prevent voters from easily switching parties, and erect ideological and partisan walls that polarize voters, parties and lawmakers.
Proof of the validity of the uniquely integrative function of the platform of the Global Social Network for Voters is provided by the following facts:
