Flux co-founder and Senate Candidate Nathan Spataro had a chat with Dan and Jen about a new model of democracy. Flux members download an app for their smartphone and vote on legislation as it comes before parliament. Flux senators take the thousands of member votes and translate that into their one senate vote. Senators have pledged to renounce their autonomy and vote the way their party members want them to.
Flux isn’t the only online democracy platform – Online Direct Democracy is also in the race this election.
This audio comes from a documentary style interview we filmed for The Undercurrent headline episode UC_008 – The Two Party Scam.
‘We as a movement don’t believe the political paradigm we exist in now is particularly satisfactory for the 21st century. We don’t think it inspires people to want to be involved in politics. We really think that we need something new to actually get people excited and make great decisions for their country.’
