The Pressure Principle

"To some degree it matters who's in office, but it matters more how much
pressure they're under from the public."
Noam Chomsky

Interactive Democracy exerts a constant pressure on politicians that may be more powerful than the elections at the end of each term, when misdeeds may be long forgot. There should be a balance of power between government, parliament and the public that is felt every day, on each decision, not occasionally on an amalgamated and distorted history.
