Many more government decisions should be and could be controlled by citizens. Taxpayers.  I think that governments should use the internet to accomplish this task. For example, every night, or once a week, or several times a month,  people should log into a government website where they could read about new decisions, new policies and then they should be able to vote. This should be compulsory. We have to be able to determine where our money goes and this would be a great new way for governments to enable their citizens to interact with the decisions making processes. All budgets should be visible and all expenses should be tracked online in real time so that we could see what is happening with our money. The governments should aim for new levels of transparency and this could be a great new way to start this.
