Mr Red Sortition Assembly (4) RE: Sortition Assembly 17 Nov 20


If you heard the TED talk you would find the Sortition Assembly would be backed up by experts and data. They could request it. They would, without enforcing laws, come to a considered opinion. There is the inclusivity aspect - they would have to be paid, and a lot of people would try to decline a disruption in there career (it affects your job prospects I can vouch).

I am not entirely in favour of the concept because it doesn't rule out cronyism by stealth. And I don't favour referenda - they beget referenda. But...........

There is a Sortition System in place in many countries, especially English speaking ones.

Trial by Jury.    Well! Whodathoughtit?
