عنوان مقاله [English]
In the era of civilization of information, citadel dwelling of some territories and wilderness dwelling of some others is a new phenomenon that this paper is trying to clearly explain its whys and where forces. Thus, this study has been carried out with a comparative study and with an empirical approach. Findings show that inequality (gap) of territories is related to their benefits of democracy (Democracy gap) .Territories inequalities in benefiting from democracy lead to inequality in information and communication technology (technology gap). Technology gap leads extensive technology owner territories to enter space of flows and territory. Also, it leads to limit territories that have less and limited place spaces. Its spatial appearance is the development of space of flows and underdevelopment of territories of place spaces (gap of development). It's necessary to say that development and underdevelopment of a Territory can respectively lead to democracy or destruction. Territories’ inequalities have roots in democracy gaps more than having roots in technology gaps because democracy is as a splitting factor of territory- places and territory- spaces. In other words, the gap place of territory in information civilization is democracy because democracy paves the way for accepting multi- acceptance of information civilization in territories.
In this way this study has done with a comparative study over based and causal - empirical approach.
Results and discussion
“development “defines as “a process of enlarging people’s choices”, “democracy” defines as “power of people’s choices”, communication and information technology is a tool to exit of “space of places” –the space with limited Alternatives- and access to “space of flows”-the space with unlimited Alternatives. Obviously, we see that a correlation among concepts of “development “,“democracy”,” communication and information technology “ and “space of flows”. Conceptual correlation between these concepts, indicates that “power of people’s choices” is important because Inequality among Territory about “power of choice” makes Inequality among Territory about ”access to communication and information technology” and “development “.Inequality among Territory before having root in technological gap, have root in democracy gap, since democracy is a distinction between places and spaces in Territories. In other words breaking point among Territories in information civilization is democracy; since democracy leads to accepting multiple vulnerabilities of information civilization on Territories.
Findings suggest that inequality (gap) of Territory is related to their benefits of democracy. (Democracy gap) inequalities of Territory of democracy lead to inequality of information and communication technology (Democracy technology). Technology gap leads to entering of the Territory with broad technology to the flows space and Territory with less and limit technology and dominant to them in fact it limits the Territories with limit technology. The spatial appearance of that is development of space in Territory and underdevelopment of places (gap of development). It's necessary to say that development and underdevelopment of a Territory can respectively lead to democracy or to ruin it.
