Experienced Politicians

Interactive Democracy doesn't diminish the need for experienced politicians. They are required to run parliament, form a government and create laws. They need to govern the process. But professional politicians sometimes lack the specialised experience of other professions for which policies are made. One advantage of ID is that it brings a vast array of life experience to bear on political decisions: the experience of doctors, nurses, teachers, soldiers and every other area of society. That adds colossal depth and breadth to political life.
