The telematic ‘piazza’

Several political movements, newspapers, commentators, sing the praises of internet as new center of the political debate.

They would also like to entrust the assumption of important decisions to the net, and there are already some examples regarding the impeachment of members of parliament.

I wonder if this people have ever looked at comments following an article on any digital media. The discussion tone reminds the devilish crowd dancing around a witches’ pyre rather than a constructive debate in the Athenian agora.
