There are several core concepts to Interactive Democracy:
- Democracy can be improved with technology which can be highly secure.
- Any modern democracy requires voter identity and secure databases.
- Good decisions can be made by the electorate, not just the elite, because voters possess a vast depth and breadth of knowledge and experience.
- Parliament should be responsible for the quality of data on which decisions are made using statistical analysis where appropriate.
- Issues attract the electorate with vested interests in the outcome (eg teachers and parents on education issues).
- A free press is crucial to democracy; "media interest" provides the impetus to make ID successful.
- Facilitating everyone's contribution to new policy suggestions through the IdeasEngine (ePetition) system, outside the constraints of the party politics, will be good for society.
