Eleanor Longden: The voices in my head
I believe that stticking to a format is necessary to keep lecturers from going off on needless tangents and is necessary. Also, the conversations whih necessarily ensue, can be found or initiated on the TED 'conversation' site...an excellent idea!

Is the American Democratic civilization dying? Why are our electors no longer listening to their constituents? Is plutocracy ruling the US?
If one truly knows the facts surrounding the work schedules of most electors, it becomes adamantly clear that very few of them work very hard. First, Congress is "out of session" several times a year. these "vacations are meant to be spent speaking with their constituents when in fact, they are usually spent in various junkets, parties and re-election campaign fund-raising. Maybe we need campaign finance reform or some such but not very realistic. Even most aides admit that Congressmen rarely have the time to read proposed bills before they vote on them. Is this not what we are paying them to do? Yet, they seem to be doing nothing but fighting amongst themselves. Why?
