Notes

Description
"The universal form of governance where citizens vote to empower their elected officials to represent their interests is simply representative government –– not a democracy where people would rule directly. Accepting this definitional distinction improves our understanding that bringing the people into the operations of government as deliberative lawmakers –– deliberative direct democracy –– is the answer to dysfunctional representative government. However, empowering the people as deliberative lawmakers is anathema to the selfish interests of elites whose power to control society would be greatly diminished. Consequently, we stay mired in systems of government that do not work" --,Amazon.com.
