With the Fearless Cities community, we want to dream about a future of consent-based governance through a hands-on exploration of on/offline tools and methods for building our digital futures. The small island country of Taiwan, with its long history of occupation, is now leading the world in participatory democracy. At its core, their facilitation process is profoundly human, yet also finds traction in the 21st century 1) through moments of assistance by an opensource algorithm that breaks people out of echo chambers rather than placing us within them 2) through harnessing the power of digital surveillance to create serious conversation, by keeping “receipts” of in-person and remote deliberation. Together these futuristic facilitation practices bring radical transparency to how we collectively decide to govern divisive social issues, producing high levels of consensus while protecting minority rights and having everyone leave the table with the feeling of being treated fairly.
