Let’s Become the Zeroth Estate

The Internet is the most powerful tool in the history of civilization. Why can’t we use it to create a platform on which the masses can attain viable political agency?

Why can’t we effect political policy and even administrative and legislative changes with fine-tuned finesse as though we make up the ultimate super-lobbyist?

Why can’t we aggregate our will and our oversight to put powerful, specific, tangible, unavoidable pressure on our elected officials?

We’re currently milling around like cave people online. Why can’t we innovate instead, leveraging the power of that network to become what we ideally should have always been?

Why can’t we, the people, finally manifest ourselves as the Zeroth Estate?
