My political education truly began with the credit-crunch of 08′, when I began to understand how little I knew about how the world really works. After a number of years of studying political and economic theories, I came to the conclusion that our society needed radical reform. This blog has been created to put forward a theoretical solution for a new and radically direct democratic political system, one that I hope will resonate with people. This system has the working title of Samplocracy, and is based upon the simple idea of using random samples of citizens to make decisions for the community. For centuries, juries across the world have worked on this basis and are a long established popular democratic form of justice. I hope to release and discuss the formulation of this solution in detail over the coming months, along with my general thoughts on the social, political, economic quandaries of the day.
