Contents:
Acknowledgments; Introduction: Our Past and Present Journey into the "Unconventional Politics of the Future"; Part I. Introduction to the New Physics and New Democratic Paradigm; 1. The Emergence and Components of the New Democratic Paradigm: Historical Surges and Visions of the Future; 2. The New Physics as the Scientific Foundation for the New Democratic Paradigm; Part II. Synergizing Teledemocracy: Scientific Deliberative Polling + Comprehensive Electronic Town Meetings + the Internet = Critical Mass
Summary: Drawing on the new physics as the scientific foundation of transformational politics, Becker and Slaton write compellingly about teledemocracy, social energy, and democratic quanta. They outline their quantum political theory in rich detail, demonstrating how we have entered a phase of highly charged, erratic, and sometimes self-contradictory packets of social political energy that appears to occur with a rough regularity but with differing levels of velocity and force.
