Megamonopolies and the need for a supranational democratic reform approach
Dr. Tamaro J. Green
The past decade saw the rise of megamonopolies that appear beyond reform. The architecture of the Internet made it easy to monopolize. Key components are responsible for the majority of processing that occurs in the background of Internet transmissions and the owners of those components control access to all information that travels on the Internet. The operation of megamonopolies on a global scale makes it difficult to apply a cohesive policy towards their operation. Instead, individual nations and regional organizations attempt to confront the megamonopolies singularly, unable to share the spoils of minor victories. Reforms for megamonopolies require individuals and nations to pursue a supranational democratic approach in order to develop policies for their protection against the dangers of megamonopolies.
Cafaro (2017) constructs a supranational democracy with the elements of legitimacy, accountability, and inclusiveness. The supranational democracy theory may be a vehicle to providing collective and cohesive assurances for the global citizen. Cafaro (2017) implores a greater focus on the global issues that unite mankind and amend the shortcomings of the international organizations in knowledge, policies, institutions, and compliance. A supranational democratic model for international organizations may prove successful in aligning the reforms of megamonopolies to meet the needs of states and individuals.
