Independence for Scotland.
Free high speed internet access for all citizens.
End political and economic corruption.
E-Voting, whereby citizens may have more input to important collective decisions.

“Information is one of the foundations of democracy and citizen’s survival. If the control of
information is concentrated in a few hands, loss of democracy is unavoidable. If information is constrained by economic powers more than single citizens, corporate interests and economic
power groups prevail over the interests of the population. For these reasons, information is the background to any other area of social interaction. A citizen that is not informed or uninformed cannot take decisions, cannot choose, they are forced, then, into a passive consumer and voter role, prevented to have a say on the choices concerning it.”
