Direct democracy is a form of democracy where the people are directly responsible for their own governance. There are no representatives, no campaigns, and no ruling bodies.
Direct democracy has been considered generally impossible on any but a small scale because it is difficult to get all people together all the time to vote on every decision. Current direct democratic movements are usually relatively small masses of displaced people such as Abahlali baseMjondolo and Landless Workers' Movement.
However, the advent of the internet and Web 2.0 technologies may be changing the possibilities for direct democracy. Movements such as Vote.org and the Metagovernment are attempting to use the internet as a vehicle to implement direct democracy.
