: It's not so much the checks and balances that stop tyranny but the people.

Well precisley, if poeple can throw away freedom in America - then you bet they can do the same in any set up.

: The structural adjustments are less than half of the required change, I mean Direct Democracy what's it for?

For some people to act like Clinton and get votes? Im not convinced DD will stay with the people, you bet representatives will turn into rulers

: It's all about giving everyone an opportunity to challenge authority as often as possible so that they can throw of the cult of servility and obediance

Yeah, now thats the stuff - so we need to stop it from going wrong - but people who want or allow other to rule them, get ruled
