Wiki and democracy

What if every citizen could participate on editing and recreating the national Constitution? This was the starting point for Assembléia Constitwiki project, led by Frederick van Amstel. He added the full text of Brazilian Constitution from 1988 to a wiki and invited everyone to edit it freely. In the end of the year, the revised text will be presented to Congress.

 I’m very curious about the outcome of this project. I think it’s brilliant, although I believe it might need some moderation depending on the number of participants.

    I think this may be a little critical. At this time I dont have enough reasons to be against or for this project, by i dont this it could work. Kinda anarchy… Everyone’s opinion on everyone’s life… Smells dangerous to me.
