• Democracy is the Mother Soil

    The question is whether if you like direct democracy, and my answer is no. Personally, I think that because people have different background, knowledge basis , experience, and the like, a direct democracy will be rather impractical for country, unless you want nothing to be done. Yet, i think that direct democracy ensure the individual rights can be recognized. This is important in a diversified country because minorities, special interest group of people, or even unappreciated elites their rights could be ignored or obliterated by majority. Humans are not capable of making perfect decisions but we learn quickly from trial and error. I think direct democracy provides the soil for recognition of minority rights to grow.

  • Everybody could vote for it and rule the state.

    Each one of you... Could vote on issues... And how is voted on them... This to become reality. Direct Democracy (DD) is simply to understand thing. You and everybody else vote on something, like whether the guns to be allowed for commoners... And how the people vote... This become law. People vote for guns... Law allow it. People no like guns... Low ban them. People are the ones who should control the government, the state. For this I vote yes, now!

  • This ain't no family vacation:

    Save direct democracy for small and petty things that don't require sensibilities and a sense of duty. Tyranny of the majority would run rampant and ultimately those who are uneducated (or just nuts) will have equivalent say as to those who are educated or reasonable. Certain policies require little to no thought and yet take years and years to implement because of a democratic mass absorbed simply by charismatic imbeciles.

  • Sounds like mob rule..

    James Madison said, "Democracy is the most vile form of government. ... Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as the have been violent in their deaths."
