Propose a law by SMS

A new initiative by Israel’s parliament will soon allow every Israeli citizen to share his or her proposal for new legislation by cellular phone text messaging. This seems to me an excellent idea to raise the citizenry involvement in the politics life of the country.

A couple of question arise:

1. Who is going to waive each proposals?

2. What is going to be the decision process to select the proposition that will take a broader audience?

3. What about conflicting propositions?

I think the basic question hinges in our definition of democracy. What do we mean by that?
