Politics could now make every decision by the people because of technology, consider the many polls. If todays technology existed as politics emerged democracy would be very different, no elections. We don’t need elected representatives in government to vote on our behalf anymore, through technology we could vote ourselves and decisions could be made by the people. With devices such as hand phones, computers and fingerprint authentication, we could do this today. In the past the US was a symbol for democracy, ruled through elections by the people. The system of government throug elections emerged before technology, politics should now be brought into the 21st century.
