5.0 out of 5 stars Carswell Hits It On The Head, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The End of Politcs and the Birth of iDemocracy (Kindle Edition)
Douglas Carswell has written a superb book analysing and explaining previous political and societal structure and explains how the internet is changing traditional perceptions.

The end of politics as we have known it to now signifies the end of an age of traditional pyramidic hierarchical power. It IS the end of an Age and with it has come Judgment Day, accompanied by a monster call Transparency. Historically and traditionally the bloke at the top has been the one who restricts and controls information to the masses.

The Digital Age (the new age) has turned this upside down and now anyone can get hold of any information. The new political age will be one of iDemocracy. Social networking sites are the 'voice on the street' - and smart politicians will realise the full value of a properly worked and interactive Facebook or Twitter page. Currently a lot of mps use them as Fansites - they do so at their peril.

Douglas compliments this also by reminding the reader how personalised the internet is for the user and that in the future it is not inconceivable to have personalised profiles with personalised medical care, finances, even employment. I hope very much that Whitehall is listening to this man - and closely. Carswell blows apart traditional thought. His book is consistent, unbiased and full of commonsense and easy to understand prose.

If you want to understand the shift in our world, read this book.
