80% of people succumb to a cognitive bias called the “illusion of above averageness”. They argue that democracy is bad, that leaders are needed to lead the people.
If you believe that most people are good and wise, if you believe that direct democracy is a good solution for us, then you belong to the 20% of the chosen ones. It is you who should start a group in your city. You should be the leader and coordinator. The fact that you don’t feel the need to lead people especially predisposes you to this role.
There are so few of us that in your area you are probably the only person who is predestined for this task. Do not ignore this calling. Start a group and invite your siblings and best friends to join it first. Build prosperity in the group and prove to ninety-five percent that it is worth cooperating.
