The book analyses the politics of time and space. It suggests that democracy’s short-sightedness explains why politics stumbles in the ever more connected world, running at an ever faster pace. Democracy is tied to nation-states defending their selfish interests and it is hostage to present-day voters with detrimental implications for future generations. Instead of adjusting to the Internet era, democracies are trying to regulate citizens’ time and space in an arbitrary manner. This must change, and the book shows how citizens acting through regional, urban and advocacy networks can shape their collective future.

Abstract

The book analyses the politics of time and space. It suggests that democracy’s short-sightedness explains why politics stumbles in the ever more connected world, running at an ever faster pace. Democracy is tied to nation-states defending their selfish interests and it is hostage to present-day voters with detrimental implications for future generations. Instead of adjusting to the Internet era, democracies are trying to regulate citizens’ time and space in an arbitrary manner. This must change, and the book shows how citizens acting through regional, urban and advocacy networks can shape their collective future.
