Direct democracy will greatly increase the number of issues placed before voters. Because of complexity, people will have to do a lot more "homework" to understand them. Will they go along with this? How much time can we expect voters to spend on issues? If we don't get very high participation, won't we just be going back to rule by a minority again?
