Civic II

What does a Republic mean? It means that voters elect their representatives to the deliberative organs of state, and it means voters elect the head of state. And why do we need a state? So that decisions can be made to enable a society to function. Why even bother with voters?

Good question, and the answer is that without votes the great majority of people do not figure in or have anything to do with the decisions made by the state on their behalf. And what's wrong with that? The answer, with us people it's not the cream that rises to the top.
