Sample text

And finally, we must attempt to understand how direct legislation is perceived in the wider context of social and legal communities. This last step is necessary since it is my belief that any good theory, be it legal, moral or political, should, if it wants to be persuasive, account for prevailing universal perceptions and understandings. Considering these three aspects, I hope, will help us reconceptualize the initiative institution, better capture the essence of initiatives and offer a plausible and coherent reading of the initiative institution.

The specific identity of the legislators, the face-to-face legislative process allows more suitable conditions for potential compromise. Direct democracy lacks these features. Primarily, it lacks the tool necessary to refine a bill once the circulation process has begun. This bars the possibility of political compromise in the final statute. 34 There are several replies to this argument. Conventional wisdom suggests that deliberation promotes mutual understanding, common rationality and consensus.

For the purposes of this work, I am taking democracy’s plausibility and justifications for granted, whatever they may be, and my goal is to prove that initiatives are desirable in light of these commonly accepted justifications for democracy. If I succeed, then those who embrace democracy should also embrace direct legislation.
