>things like agitating for direct democracy and all that stuffs just reads kinda bourg too, I mean, the popular masses often don't even care about liberal democracy, I sometimes feels it's too "intellectual" for it to be a popular theory
Funny, I pretty much have the exact opposite impression.
The popular masses do care about liberal democracy, indeed too much, they believe they actually are represented and have power and freedom due to the electoral system.
Also the bourg hates referendums, they are usually forced out of the bourgeoisie via mass unrest, and when the vote for an option that the ruling class doesn't like happens, it often isn't even guaranteed to go through anyways (leading to more disillusionment with the status quo and/or social unrest). Brexit has been a big recent exception. Brexit is a blow to the haute-bourgeoisie and a win for the petit and national bourgeoisie of specifically England (not Scotland, not Northern Ireland). Hence even if you let fucking brits
do a direct-democratic vote, the results are hastening the fall of imperial powers.
This doesn't even begin to address the fact that the Cockshottian model is within the context of being guided by class conscious, revolutionary communist partisans utilizing independently produced electronic hardware / software for bringing about the referendums.
>Direct democracy is not at all a popular idea
It is a popular idea across continental Europe, latin america, basically anywhere in the western world not completely dominated by neoliberal (central metropolitan regions of Germanic countries) or conservative (Eastern Europe) ideology.
>and is generally associated with lots of deadlock and argumentation
Not with electronic means.
>Good luck explaining to people what it would even look like with computer voting when most people already don't trust computers.
Again, you don't really have the finger on the pulse of the popular masses if you think they're all infosec experts like some niche activists in your direct friendship circles. Tip: search for how many people have a registered Facebook account. Spoiler: 2.70 billion monthly active users
Does it stike you that the proletariat at large is studying network protocols, metadata prevention, MitM countering, encryption schemes and anonymization technologies in their free time? No, they all use fucking smartphones with giant corporations phoning home 24/7.
Lenin would've wanted to reach these people, not circlejerk in some puritan club while expecting them to come flock to you because of how well you argue in a print paper to your clique of other Marxist-Leninists.
It is not what he proposes to use. He's claimed explicitly that this was a proof of concept done by some students at his university. He claimed this needed to be improved upon before widespread use (something up for a dedicated cybernetic communist org which has yet to come in existence). You are either ignorant or spreading FUD right now.
