Nice ideas. I have some questions. In your system:

  • Should voting be mandatory ?
  • Should all matters go to referendums from tax cuts to import fees for livestock?
  • Should direct democracy be local too, aka city level referendums ?
  • What happens when earthquakes or wars begin? Does an “emergency state” exist in a direct democracy?
  • Can a direct democracy work without the technology we have today?
  • In the event of an asteroid hitting the planet, how will this society of direct democracy carry on existing?
  • How much political or civic time per citizen should this society assume for a perfectly rational direct democracy?
  • How do things with chains of command work in a direct democracy? Should generals create referendums?

I hope you’re active here on Medium, I like your direct manner, especially since the Romanian version of your articles sound quite good and provocative :)

I write so you feel like you’ve just had an idea. It’s a nice feeling.
