So for those who aren't familiar with the concept of Decentralized Democracy, it is this: Ensuring as much of 'the vote' is in the hand of each citizen as possible, and ensuring that decision-making leaders are held closely to those they represent. (A politician writes the best law that will work for the citizenry, he does not actually take direction for them.)
In line with this idea is the concept of the money vote. Since whenever we buy a product, it is basically saying that you are okay (or ignorant of) the process through which that service or product came to be. The money vote funds a lot of bad and good activity, such as cluster-bomb manufactures and companies that actively crush labour movements, as well as corporations moving for zero-waste production and restoring seed diversity.
The most comprehensive guide for putting your money where your mind is is "The Better Shopper" Guide; A book that grades and categorizes all groceries and basic amenities for the consumer, telling them who is naughty and who is nice. The flaw of the book, despite it's easy layout, is that it is one more thing to do and the average Joe is too lazy to do it. A far more significant flaw is that it becomes outdated fairly quickly as companies actively shift their policies, merge, or separate.
With the advent of RFID-reading Cellphones however, the system could be kept up to date, trouble-free, and placed in a tool that everyone carries with them as is, should someone write a program that could be downloaded onto the phone. I do not have programming experience, but people like Randall seem to be able to make their GPS computers sing sweet music to them. Is there interest and advice on developing a program to this end? It would require the user to order 20 items in list of priority (labour rights over environment, GM Product over labour rights, etc.) The cellphone's RFID reader would have to recognize the chip, which contains the name of the producer. The name would be run through an NGO-owned database and it would run through the 20 item list. If there is more good then bad according to the user's preference, you would get a curt 'go-ahead' signal from the phone. The consumer would know they are not funding a company that opposes their ethics.
I believe it has huge potential, especially if the feedback can be sold to corporations. Companies would change faster knowing that the effect on their sales would be immediate, regardless of how ignorant about the business the consumer may be. I could see a lot of interested investors for the idea too.
Could such a program be written up with say, Python? Are there people here interested in the idea or knowledgeable about current limitations? If you feel you are, please tell me what you have to say, a little about yourself, and if you would be willing to take on the project.
