Computer communication technologies, such as the Internet, have become very common in many democratic public spheres throughout the world. The often-asked question is how people can use them for political purposes. Using several real world examples and the deliberative democracy theories of Rawls, Habermas, and Dryzek, this guide answers that question, and shows just what effect they have on the power of citizens. Look out for other Reluctant Geek guides including Jürgen Habermas and Deliberative Democracy, John Rawls and Deliberative Democracy, John Dryzek and Deliberative Democracy, Deliberative Democracy Basics, Deliberative Democracy Essentials, Ricoeur's Hermeneutic Arc and the Internet, and The Propaganda Model and the Internet. All of which are available through Smashwords and all good ebooks vendors.
