The internet is changing the nature of politics and government. In the face of ever-solidifying media consolidation, blogs now form the backbone of real reporting; web sites dedicated to exploring government, politics, and issues in general are popping up with ever-increasing frequency.
Issuepedia hopes to eventually be part of an interlocking network of such projects which together will provide a sound basis for managing the human realm (humans and everything they interact with) in a way that maximizes freedom and minimizes waste.
