Thought of the day

While we constantly debate the virtues of big versus small government has it ever occured to anyone to look at what point a population is better micromanaged? instead of cities, just take things by population density. One rep per set number of people etc. While I know in the U.S. our voting system is set up so that big population areas aren’t ignored by major campaigns, but my question is how many people managing themselves is the optimal level? how many people should be in charge of casting ballots to determine how the people in their block live? It seems like at a certian point we just substitute beauracy for effecieny. At what point can we not be anarchastics but still democratic? and is that preferable? part of the problem with democracy isn’t space (i.e. red state living under blue etc.) it’s the problem of different sets of people unable to accept the dicates of another. Why we need to break up laws by linear lines in the forms of states I don’t understand. Can’t we just have patches of voting blocks? distritcs? etc.

 

Peace,

    “While I know in the U.S. our voting system is set up so that big population areas aren’t ignored by major campaigns”

    should be small population areas.
