Why do you want To Start Using Represenitive democracy?
I want to switch because I think it is easier and better for the people
Well, also some people might lie about what they think. They could turn against their friends.
When all the people have a chance to talk laws are better and less bias.
With the new ways we would have less people at gatherings and would not need a huge jury.
Those selected people can still do what they want and ignore the people. How can you stop that from happening?
Selected representatives can listen to their people do and what they say.
But, other citizens can vote. Also a citizen can talk to his family and friends about what they think is fair.
I guess you can't control that. But, in Athens citizens can go against other people
That is true, but If they don't agree with a law they can vote against it or say what they think is right to the crowd. Direct Democracy should stay in Athens.
You are right about that. Maybe Direct Democracy is better for Athens.
If you really do hate it though, you can always move to Rome!
