Hey, there is a quick solution: don't understand something, ask. 
Better, ask on the wiki. The FAQ on the beyondpolitics wiki was 
created because Jan Kok, having read those tomes to some degree, 
finally *asked* a series of questions, and the answers became the 
FAQ. (He put it together.)


I just looked at the site and was gratified to find that some of it 
is unfamiliar.... I am no longer the only one working on this....

Another writer made a comment apparently assuming that I'm seeking 
personal power, that I want to set up proxy democracy because I want 
to be a proxy. Not so. In fact, my motives were quite the opposite. I 
want to be able to call up my proxy and be heard.... I want a system 
in place that can consider new ideas and vet them or answer them.... 
I'm not seeking office at all.

Indeed, if someone has a better idea, please, relieve me of my 
misery. I'd really rather spend time with my children and 
grandchildren. But I'm trying to build a better world for them, a 
less frustrating and dangerous place. And I think I know how to do it.
