Does your country have an Electronic Direct Democratic (E2D) party?
This would be a BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG thing in my BOGUS country of India infested with bigots and ruled by despots. Answer is India DOES NOT have it and will be the LAST NATION on earth to embrace e-voting as long as the Gandhi family (no relation to Mahatma Gandhi) rules the nation. The electronic ballot machines have been tampered too. I have heard one gentleman talk about it... e-voting from anywhere in the world. I can give a case from India for analysts to compare. India is a bogus democracy.

Hans Rosling: Global population growth, box by box
Dear Dr. Rosling, Your thoughts are kind and re-assuring. I have seen each one of your videos on ted and I am glad I can see through my evolution in those bubbles but the cynic in me needs an answer to this frustrating and consistent phenomenon What if the self appointed leaders and Governments in rogue democracies like India have a singular objective viz. To keep people ignorant, architect shoratages with all kinds of bogus taxes and duties, thwart educational aspirations of people because poverty actually makes it easy for these Governments to win elections year after year, thus making the nation poorer and poorer. Yes surely the nation will improve but in a rogue nation like India this can happen only if the Government stays out of everything. This is tne only reason why I dont want the west to help India because the Governments who go there with begging bowls actually usurp all the money.

Wael Ghonim: Inside the Egyptian revolution
The most repressive country in the world is INDIA. Unfortunately the nation is so divided and hetergeneous that nothing on earth can actually unite India for a cause. A SINGLE family is ruling the nation for 60 years. In these 60 years the ruling leaders have done everything to keep people clueless, illeterate, poor and divided. More loot has has happened in India after the British left in 1947. Savour this: Hosni Mobarak was awarded whats called Jawaharlal Nehru prize for International understanding not so long ago. Jawaharlal Nehru was the chief architect of poverty in India and the first prime minister whose kin still rule the country.

Yasheng Huang: Does democracy stifle economic growth?
Dear Professor Huang 10000% true and honest comparison. Ask any concerned economist in India and he will speak exactly the same language. I wish you could address the house of bigots called parliament of India and remind them of their worthless oxbridge credentials that they so promptly boast of.

David Bismark: E-voting without fraud
Dear David, I am myself wondering why such a simple technology is still not used in elections www. Try convincing the election commission of India, they will try to find faults with this method too. Its a big mindset issue. I guess we can conduct elections even with a cell phone SMS, its about encrypting a vote with 2 levels of identity. I am not sure of the rest of the world but India had a problem with electronic voting machines too on the grounds that it is not tamper proof. but fact remains that people MUST to the ballot booths to vote and this something that 60% of India doesnt do with the result being illeterates voting illeterates to power. The key here is the mediums of voting.. webiste, cell phone, calling an IVRS and going to the booth. Could you convince the election Commission of India.
