Transparency

The United Democratic Commonwealth is designed constitutionally to have complete transparency over all state activities, and the procedures and events which parties undertake on behalf of the UDC.

Why is transparency so important to the UDC?

Actual democracy is not possible without transparency.

Without transparency, corporations and other special interests interfere with the political process. They bribe, extort, coerce, lie, threaten and otherwise finagle deals for themselves. Because the (non-transparent) process is a black box, the real people whom the state represents will seldom know the actual reasons for state actions. Representatives and special interests can later claim certain actions were required because of technical or market concerns, or other justifications.

The United Democratic Commonwealth does not permit special interests to affect state policy without the direct knowledge and consent of the people.
