The present system of parliamentary 'democracy' has degenerated into an elective dictatorship that makes a mockery of the separation of powers. Giving the voters the last word in any decision will be an essential safeguard against the abuse of powers by any party that holds a majority in Parliament. At the same time we should not forget to reform the present political system that links the formation of government to a majority in parliament (which should supervise and control government not just be herded into cowardly submission). Parliamentary Democracies suffer from a complete lack with respect to the separation of powers and have to make way for an overhaul that includes the introduction of Direct Democracy.

We estimate that only a very small minority of people could name the member of parliament that represents their constituency and while one can only hope that the majority of MP's are honest and diligent overdue reliance of these qualities can be avoided in political system with direct democratic control at all levels of government.

is more than a traditional Political Party. We do not see this Cause as a career choice - or stepping stone leading to a lucrative career in the private sector.

is not a Think Tank that publishes lengthy reports that are only read by a few insiders and later disappear in some library of filing cabinet.

is not a Lobby or Special Interest Group that tries to gain advantage at the expense of other groups of society.

is not a Religion or Ideology and does not try to make people believe in something except in the belief that no one should be allowed to rule our lives.

Decisions you would be able to influence:

By giving the reader examples of recent policy decisions we highlight the dramatic impact the introduction of Direct Democracy would have on the political life of all countries.

All the following decisions where taken without the participation of the affected citizens. Some - if not most - were highly controversial and have a negative effect for at least some major parts of the country's population.

The present system of government not only leaves the citizens powerless in the face of a never-ending tide of legislation, it also inevitably leads to inefficient use of taxpayer's money and a steady erosion of civil liberties.

See what decisions the citizens could influence directly in a proper democratic system
