Democracy

If  the upcoming icelandic election end up turning the political landscape upside-down, it could be for a good reason. The icelandic protests against their government and the stories about icelandic bankers ending up in jail for their part in the financial crisis is commonly known, but this story had escaped by attention:

It is about the crowdsourced attempt at writing a new constitution. The proposal got two-thirds of the votes in a non-binding referendum but the icelandic parliament have not moved forward on it.

I respect the democracy and if you choose to ignore a large majority of the population I think you deserve to lose power.

In the summer the Pirate Party seemed to become the big winner but is currently only polling as the second-largest party – with one recent poll showing a bit of a comeback to them.
