Make Democracy Great Again: Liquid Democracy
Liquid Democracy can use modern technology to achieve benefits which the status quo cannot achieve.
Current form of democracy exists, because it was unfeasible for a citizen to travel to the capital to cast a vote every time, and so representatives were sent instead.
Zero Knowledge Proofs
allow us to use cryptography to verify that a voter has followed the rules
their individual vote. This is a required precursor for Liquid Democracy to work in the real world.
Liquid Democracy relies on technology that might not be accessible to all potential voters.
Technological advances are merely an argument for the possibility of liquid democracy, not for its desirability, when compared to better democracy innovations.
Technological feasibility is a requirement, not a favourable argument, not all that is technologically feasible should be done.
Higher reliance on technology amounts to higher susceptibility to cyber attacks.
