We can all agree that we are moving, and in fact, we are already deep into new era of society. The digital world has taken over, and the Internet has become one of the most important assets and tools in our society.

We function in a different way. We market ourselves in a different ways. Social media, websites, blogs, and everything in between has allowed people to express their opinion.

With that being said, one of the biggest challenges for society nowadays is to transform from the non-digital, to the digital world. And that is especially hard for democracy. We all want to quote Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is the freedom of opinion and expression.

But in reality, we are clueless as to what it is, or what it should be. We need to have a conversation about democracy in the 21st century.

Pia Mancini, a co-founder of DemocracyOS, and founder of the Net Party in Argentina, talks about the challenges of democracy in the Internet era.
