The GREATER Jury is about to gear up its second public policy trial. This time with a website, www.GREATERjury.us. A large ideologically diverse jury will choose their own topic, gather and cross examine the evidence, propose solutions, co-create the ballot, and vote. Assuming the verdict is newsworthy, perhaps with vast supermajority support, it will be widely published. Over time there could be a platform of public policy solutions that are not only popular but also deeply studied. The time commitment is an hour or two a week for about three months. We only need 20 more jurors to crest the minimum of 60 for this round. In future trials there may be as many as 1000 jurors working together to discover public policy solutions. This is the opposite of politics. What if we discover first, what we can agree upon, based on evidence before tackling the seemingly intractable issues? So, what public policy would you put on trial? One that might have supermajority solutions after a few months of deep crowdsourced study? If you are interested in participating in the trial, you can fill out an application at https://jondenn.typeform.com....

For this debate? Doesn't matter to me. For the trial? Hmm. At least 13yrs old, and can keep up intellectually.
