Imagine how easy legislative process can be with Git! Imagine a world where every citizen has the capability to propose new laws or amend the existing ones; where strategic implementation can arise from anyone and is not limited to Senators and Congressmen alone; where healthy arguments can make way for progress. It will be hard at first as you’ll have to consolidate all discussions coming from millions of people, but the more you feed the computer all possible data, the easier it will be. In the end, it will all be worth it.
You don’t need to be very knowledgeable in computers or laws to understand these stuff; just grasp the basic concept and it will suffice.
True democracy is present when the possibility of shaping a state is present at the hands of every citizen. And I believe Git (or any open source project for that matter) can help.
