An idea worth spreading
Tribunocracy is a new form of democratic voting that provides more informed and studied public participation in elections and referendum. It reduces the corruption and distraction caused by money and the need to raise it.
Tribunocracy utilizes Tribunes randomly selected from all the willing eligible potential voters. Like jurors in a Court Trial, the selected Tribunes attend a public trial-like Tribunal Convention before voting. The majority vote of the Tribunes is a proxy for the majority vote of the entire pool of eligible voters from whom they were selected. Tribunes like jurors are exposed to facts and information presented in an orderly and publicly observed forum. Tribunes have direct exposure to the candidates and focused time to consider and discuses the issues. Testimony is recorded and under oath, and subject to rebuttal. Like jurors Tribunes are dismissed after voting and retain no special power. Tribunocracy is the thing the world most needs now.
