What brings you to NatCAN?
I started running a direct democracy campaign, Vote For Yourself, in Sept 2009, the idea being that everyone could vire online and that would be preferable to political parties. After the Brexit referendum I parked the campaign because I had overestimated the capabilities of a large minority of the public, they're just not ready.

The lies and distortions of the mainstream media on behalf of the 1% need to be challemged if we are going to evolve. I recognise that everyone who is protesting and seeks significant change needs to rally under one banner.

Yours, mine some other - it isn't important which banner, but if it doesn't happen the 1% will continue to run the world to the disadvantage of the 99%.
