The skankworks.net is in favour of putting an end to elections for public office. While many have been misled into believing that Democracy = Elections we at the skankworks.net have not been so easily fooled. The narrative likes to suggest that the art of campaigning allows the public to make an informed choice as to which of the candidates is most suitable, whereas history shows that this is simply not the case.
We propose that henceforth elected officials are chosen in the same way we chose a jury – at random and for a limited period. Such a system retains rule by the people and ensures that the people who make the laws will be chosen in the same way as those who must decide if they have been broken.
