The End of Politicians: Time for a Real Democracy - new video
Hi! Here's more book-related news:
- Check out my new short video, The End of Politicians: Time for a Real Democracy, which I've finished just in time for the start of my book tour.
- And here is another video - the "cuddly" version of political change using sortition, packaged as community engagement. This G1000 event is what I'm helping to organise in Cambridge this September
- Or do you want a more serious proposal? Then here is a detailed document I co-authored: "A Citizens' Assembly for the Scottish Parliament" which specifies the first step towards the end of politicians: by complementing the Scottish parliament with a sortition chamber.
