I believe that the modern representative democracy is outdated as a political institution. I like to say that it’s the best form of government that the mid-18th century could produce. Think about it: because both travel and communications were hard, local groups had to pick one of their own to go all the way to the capital and help make laws in the group’s name. Now that travel and communications are easy, there’s probably a better system.
