but the present system has been hijacked by money interests, so a new branch, in the least, needs to be introduced. joe should be able to police the police, for example, as opposed to practically letting them be dogs of the executive class.

Re: Direct Democracy is mob rule

it seems defined enough to me. like i said in our previous discussions, with 3d printers, our own currency, internet, permaculture and so forth, i believe we will have a self-sustaining revolution and this old capitalist system will collapse. there will simply not be enough jobs for everyone, becaus...

Re: Direct Democracy is mob rule

if you want some questions: 1) do you think there is too much money in politics, and corruption not serving the best interests of the population because of it? 2) and if so, how do you propose we improve the situation? 3) if the many manage to sway the situation so they are served better, isn't that...

Re: Direct Democracy is mob rule

like i said before, i think certain decision making can be more regionalised. if people in a city wanna smoke dope, or walk around naked, let them. too much centralised power, which i believe opens things to abuse. most people are reasonably capable of managing their own households, so why do so man...

Re: Direct Democracy is mob rule

you're straying. letting joe decide how to run his own life is different than joe telling a politician what to do, because what the politican decides affects joe, so joe has a right of input. the voting would not need to affect complex legal issues, but for example the politicians should not be able...

Re: Direct Democracy is mob rule

i don't think my voting site could ever "insure" that a power elite is not in control but by allowing average joe to vote on individual issues etc i believe it would make it more difficult for the power elite
