What if we replaced politicians with randomly selected people? (Ted.com)

Brett Hennig Ted.comIf you think democracy is broken, here's an idea: let's replace politicians with randomly selected people. Author and activist Brett Hennig presents a compelling case for sortition democracy, or random selection of government officials -- a system with roots in ancient Athens that taps into the wisdom of the crowd and entrusts ordinary people with making balanced decisions for the greater good of everyone. Sound crazy? Learn more about how it could work to create a world free of partisan politics.

To celebrate, my publisher Unbound has slashed the price of the Kindle edition of The End of Politicians: Time for a Real Democracy - get it while it's on sale!
