Sortition is where science meets politics.
Sortition randomly empowers leadership from the pool of citizens. Sortition, as opposed to balloting, assures mathematically and scientifically equal representation of all citizenry. That is, it guarantees equal representation of gender, ethnic, economic, religious, and political viewpoints. Sortition finds the “grass roots” and mathematically guarantees their democratic representation.
Sortition also finds citizenry common sense. This is because sortition is not bias toward “experience”, “education”, “intelligence”, “beauty”, or “charisma”. Sortition provides these qualities only in their natural population proportions. Too much “education, “intelligence”, “beauty”, or “charisma” in government may not produce optimum governance or citizen approval.
Common sense works. Common sense built America. The constitution is impressively short and common sense. Constitutional common sense is still valid 230 years later.
Sortitioned leadership provides constant, incessant shake up, and oversight of established leadership, bureaucracies, and other government institutions. Sortition provides hedge to Robert Michels’ “iron law of oligarchy” and guards democracy from internal corruption.
Sortitioned leadership is organized common sense leadership. America’s constitution was founded and established on American common sense. It is time to establish organized common sense in American’s government and corporate structures.
When restaurant service suffers, more waiters are needed. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are needed. When crime is rampant, more police are needed. When democracy morphs to elected oligarchy and America lacks governance, send help to the few surviving democratic representatives. More representatives are needed. More presidents are needed. Democracy disperses power. Autocracy consolidates power. Step it up, America. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
