Re: choosing representatives by lots (I knew that was gonna be part of it). A pretty good idea for all the reasons mentioned. However, it does take away people's feeling of control. It may well be just the illusion of control, but unless people feel like they can install others into authority who they think can 'fix' things, I think such a system would rapidly be threatened by a movement demanding that people get to choose who makes decisions on their behalf.

I emphasise again that the latter is not necessarily a superior method - but how people feel about their political system is pretty important.


Cunt this is a critical point I hadn’t given due thought to. Hmmm


You could have an elected house and a house chosen by lot?

The idea has merit but it’s anti democratic. Hmm.

And I fucking blame you fuckwits who voted for Trump in the primary, classic low information voter.

We need pull taxes, to cull the opinions of DINDU's and inbred Trump supporters. >>::$
