The Demarchy Manifesto: For Better Public Policy

Front Cover
Andrews UK Limited, Apr 25, 2016 - Philosophy - 155 pages
Demarchy exploits the possibilities of modern communications to give new role to public discussion. It takes the initiative in formulating policy on each specific problem out of the hands of political parties and into the hands of those most strongly affected by that particular problem. John Burnheim explains why this needs to be done and how it can be done by voluntary initiative without constitutional change.
