Example text

Direct legislation contributes to the political satisfaction of the people since it allows them to make change to the laws that are in accordance with their authentic political preferences. It diminishes the power of political parties which often serve as an obstacle in the implementation the people’s will. 36 In the next section, I criticize numerous arguments against direct legislation which target voters’ competence and their ability to legislate rationally. I believe these arguments underestimate voters’ ability to make intelligent choices.

That is, if we perceive moral autonomy as a fundamental value, then a regime that most advances it by granting the people the freedom to rule themselves is desirable. For the people to rule themselves what is needed is a regime that reflects, in some proximity, their actual preferences and values. 20 Prima facie, it seems that direct democracy generally, and direct legislation in particular, increases popular sovereignty. 22 Now, where the people have their say independently, when they can promulgate their unfiltered preferences, it is only reasonable to conclude that they are more in control over their lives and politically more satisfied.

43 The open character of the democratic process, the accountability of political officials to the public and the free exercise of the right to participate in the political process all contribute to the establishment of just policies in a democracy. The shared values of morality are used to settle arguments and to justify actions, both one’s own actions and the actions of others. The people want a uniform, overriding system of morality and they genuinely want to abide by it. Democracy promotes this.
