You may have heard the new idea.

It sounds intriguing at first, but a note of caution is warranted.

First, advocates for the new idea have framed their demands in simple terms, but it’s actually quite complex.

Second, the new idea hasn’t been tried before. You know what that means: there’s no evidence that it works.

Strike three: I looked into some of the claims advocates for the new idea have made and they’re not quite up to my standards, which I’d certainly like to apply here.

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
