Daniel Rosen's website that you mention appears to be inoperative.

Furthermore, his policy was one of enforcement of advocacy on every issue. This would entail the citizens making their views known on every issue.
In practise, I don't believe a majority of citizens would take part in every decision. This would lead to minority interests and lobby groups carrying the day. Not really what we want to see.

I feel it would be more feasible to let representatives make decisions on our behalf, as they do now, unless their constituents deem an issue to be of such import, that they can demonstrate an overwhelming majority opinion.

It could be envisaged that this would happen rarely, if at all and is thus more likely to be enacted.

Once enacted however, it would be an immensely powerful tool, which could lead to much greater involvement by the citizens and further enhancement of DD.
