Now with my fixed wireless connection, I can listen to your podcasts.

Good inverview. I suppose that if he got his way, our system of Democracy would be much better off.

I wonder, though, not having read the book, how he thinks any of this is going to occur? He says in his podcast that he likes to provide actual solutions, but what I didn't hear discussed was how they should be implemented. I would hardly call that offering "solutions".

If we rinsed the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, we could stop global warming. OK, but how, by whom, at whose cost?

Likewise, the only individuals who can implement any of his solutions also the ones who have the most to lose by doing so! If they are as corrupt as he says they are (and I think they are) why on earth would they want to change that system against their own interests?

Is this discussed in his book, or is it all pie in the sky?

Yes! More and better ballot initiatives! The U of Colo. Law School presents a conference on ballot initiatives and how to improve them on Jan 26 at the Colorado Capitol.

The Economist Magazine has been saying for decades "letting the people themselves take the decisions is the logical next step for the West." Indeed Western history since the Magna Carta can be seen as a path to more democracy: "Government by the People."
