Abstract

In a recent post, the RSA’s Adam Lent argued that politics could learn from the internet in order to stem the tide of political apathy and disengagement. But can (and perhaps more importantly, should) politics actually be more like the internet? Democratic Audit’s co-Director Jonathan Hopkin argues that events in Italy show that it is much too soon to draw conclusions from their unique web-based experience, but it does suggest that the internet is far from a panacea.
