Interesting rayzer. Will take a look at your webpage. I will be releasing the English / international version of my book “Upgrading Democracy” by the end of this year. This is the step between the current political system and the one you seem to imagine. See https://upgradingdemocracy.com/ . So there might be some things we have in common. :-)(

Hi @rayzer, very happy to see your initiative. Are you looking for partners?
I am also working on upgrading our democracy and give talks about it. I am happy to see that @pmonien is also working on that, and I am looking forward to reading his book.
I would be interested in having a call. Would this be of your interest too?
Warm regards,


Hi @lylycarrillo of cause. Happy to talk. :slight_smile: I would have time to talk next week.
The basic idea can be found on upgradingdemocracy.com. But I just started with this. If you want, I can send you a Adcanced Reader Copy of my book end of next week. Best, Peter

Hi Peter,
Next week is fine for me. When exactly is better for you? I live in Ghent, CET time zone.
And yes! I would love to receive a copy of your book.
Warm regards,

Hi Liliana,

CET sounds good. I am based close to Zurich. So same time zone. :slight_smile:

This week would be actually better for me. Somewhen until Monday the coming week, so 14th. Skype or https://whereby.com or …?

I will send you the ACR in the next days. Please send me your e-mail address.
I wonder if we can actually send direct messages here?..

& talk to you soon


Just saw you on YouTube, your TED presentation.
Let me know when you have time to chat.
Best, Peter

YES. I received a review in the magazine of Germanies largest “More Democracy” club in their member magazine:

“The vision of a new party model by Peter Monien is well thought out and offers many starting points for making democracy more direct and taking advantage of technological progress. The book asks the right questions and approaches the question of more citizen participation at the federal level in a pragmatic and prudent manner. The model has the potential to make existing parties superfluous. - Let’s project our preferences to the Parliament! By proxy party.”

Hope to see you soon on zoom :slight_smile:
Best, Liliana.
