Logicracy is a free, on-line process that gives the people the power to solve some of the most profound social and political problems facing many nations today.
In a nutshell, Logicracy makes it possible for the people to easily define and implement a decision-making process which the majority can agree will produce much better decisions than are currently made by any government, and use that process to produce decisions which can then be compared with the decisions made by government. When a decision made by the process differs from the decision made by government, the government's incompetence is proven. It isn't necessary for people to agree on the "best" decision making process. They need only agree the process is better.
For example, imagine that a surprise question is given to voters as they leave the voting booth, like "Who was buried in Grant's Tomb?". By eliminating or reducing the weight of the vote of those that get that question wrong (the bottom three percent), the outcome of many close elections would be changed. Most would agree this decision making process is better than our current process--thus its outcome can be used to test the outcomes of our current process. Logicracy provides analysis tools and data gathering techniques that make a huge variety of such decision-making processes possible, including the one described here. Logicracy also makes it possible to eliminate all but a negligible amount of fraud from the online data gathering process. Click HERE for more information.
Logicracy is non-profit, there are no advertisements, and membership is free.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.
