@WimNusselder Yes, representative democracy is due for a review. But let's not forget the failures of direct democracy either. You says, "Not the number of votes, but the content and quality of voices should determine decisions." Agreed, each vote has to be discounted by the "quality" it brings to the table. And yet, what determines the quality? Reputation in a social network? Teenagers will come ahead. Scholarly work published online? Those removed from the "common working men" often make ridiculous errors in judgement. Shall we institute a test to determine fitness to vote? You see where this is going. Somehow the system needs to allow for direct and immediate input from the people, and yet correct for delusions of the mob.
