Influence, and the Internet is Giving Power Back to the People

Renaissance Books

As the print and broadcast media-commonly referred to as the Fourth Estate-falters and fails, a new social and political force is rising in power. The Fifth Estate, as Morris has dubbed it, is made up of the rapidly growing number of voters who use Internet technology. This army of younger citizens with easy access to information and a direct link to their representatives heralds a new dawning of democracy, putting political power back into the hands of the people.

Part OneHOW THE INTERNET IS TAKING OVERBY EARLY 1999, seventy-five million Americans over the age of sixteen were using the Internet, with 60 percent of them logging on every day. Internet use is growing by 25 percent per year. As everybody learns to log on, Internet voting will become the centerpiece of our democracy. While it will be many years before the politicians who control Congress and the state legislatures let us actually vote over the Internet, we Americans will use the Net anyway, increasingly and massively, to express our views to the government.Chapter OneVOX POPULI IN CYBERSPACETHOMAS
