A topic for discussion
free.vote is an anonymous decision making platform for groups
Anonymity on the internet can have its problems, but anonymity does have its place.
Think about this:
- Why do staff surveys always guarantee anonymity?
- Why does Lady Justice wear a blindfold?
- Why do we use secret ballots in elections?
Anonymity is important because
- The “truth” should not depend upon who says it.
- Facts and opinions should be allowed to speak for themselves and should not carry more or less weight depending upon a person’s wealth, power, status or social standing.
- There should be no consequences for daring to speak the truth, nor favouritism for bending the truth in favour of those with power and influence.
- Facing up to the truth can be difficult. Anonymity allows everyone to express themselves honestly and to disagree without fear and agree without favour.
Flattering the leader can lead to personal favour, but in the long run, leads to the disempowerment of everybody.
