Today decisions are often made by out-of-touch, ego-driven politicians with one eye on the polls and the next election. And powerful vested and factional interests often have too much influence on political decisions.
So it's no wonder people don't trust politicians and the political class, and are disillusioned with politics.
Fortunately, there is a better way to make political decisions. By bringing randomly selected, representative groups of everyday people together in Citizens' Assemblies we can break the hold of career politicians on decisions and bypass the powerful vested interests.
Let's create a real democracy of the people, by the people, and for the people.
