A new frontier is emerging in governance, government, accountability, and relations between the government at any level and the citizens of the given social unit.  Members of the government can either use this technology, get a better understanding of social needs as they evolve and fluctuate.  Or they can continue with the paternalistic “father knows best” bs, and continue to do whatever they, the members of the government want over the needs of the population.  One way will lead to a sympatico relationship between government and governed, the other will provoke the governed into a war against the government and all who support the status quo.

What’s it going to be, America?  World?
