So many of y'all and just one me. Okay.
In Switzerland it's called "direct democracy". Just sayin'.
Okay. (Here's the article the video was based upon. It was linked in the description of the said video. Yay for attention) And I'm not judging spherical democracy in vacuum, just particular implementations. Sweden and Israel apparently have it better theт US. Go figure.
Case in point. Your vote didn't matter.
For such high-brow academics as yourself I've linked a hopefully more credible article above.
So you do admit that there can be a situation when voting is useless? Good. It also happen to be the case in my country. Oh well.No. It was a cover-up vote which is not recognized internationally and moreover things went increasingly shittier since.
I have to admit that in some instances even representational democracy does work as long as there is something resembling a consensus within society and a sufficient economic stability. Well, we'll live and see, eh?
On this optimistic note I have to stop this discussion. Thanks everyone.
On a Dreamfall side of thing - who gave Baruti the data? Could it be Marxists?
Well written political ideas.
For the game; it is a good question. It is important who first informed Baruti about the scandal. I don't remember whether he learnt about the scandal while making some research himself or from some other informant. Since he is one of the important figures of the campaign, it is possible he could reach the data himself. However, I guess someone tipped him about the data. It could be Marxists, the Alliance of bla bla (current government party) or some other group with good or bad intentions. Since we are not sure that the data is not fake, even Wati, Syndicate, etc. could have given him the information.
