RCG: Towards a Radically Balanced Legislature

Version 1.3,
10/11/2004

The following is an
attempt to define what Aristotle might call the “final cause” of representative legislature (and
other democratic processes), as a guide to determining their optimal structure.
Thanks to my friends on
centroids
for their input.

The purpose
of
democratic
systems
is to

justly optimize liberty
across all the people

by
establishing incentives to:


i) perceptively prioritize
issues
of the people

ii)
creatively develop
ideas
by the people

iii) wisely
make
decisions
for the people
