Hi All,

In the 'Missedville' constitution that Fred and I are constructing, we're making use of several facets of DD:- Fred's 'active democracy' for selecting leaders; I&BR; recall and what I've called 'Enforcement of Advocacy'.

From all I've read, it appears that most agree that any implementation of DD, will be by small incremental steps, probably from the local level up.

Enforcement of advocacy - Where a representative's constituents demonstrate an 'overwhelming' majority, said representative, is obliged by law, to advocate said majority opinion and vote accordingly.

We elect representatives at present, to make decisions on our behalf. In many cases, the people are content to carry on their own lives and let the people they elect carry out the business of governance. With 'enforcement of advocacy', this could continue.

There are issues however, that exercise the populace greatly and it is only right that in such a circumstance, the majority view carries the day. All democracies, after all, are based on majorities of one sort or another.

This enforcement of advocacy would vest sovereignty with the people, while allowing present systems to continue. It could be implemented via the interweb at low cost. Politicians, realising that a large majority is difficult to achieve, may be more amenable to enacting such legislation, aware that it would rarely be effective.

Once in place however, it would enable other facets of DD to be implemented, if that was the wish of the people.

I suggest an overwhelming majority is 65 - 75%.

Best Regards
