Just the opposite. I am arguing we should decide on the outcome and then let the experts decide on the process to reach the outcome. The problem is that the present democratic system involves micromanaging each and every single element of the process to reach the outcome. Voters are asked to analyze the process and determine for themselves whether the process can reach such and such outcome, and then evaluating how each individual involved in constructing the process performed. For many problems, voters are incapable of accomplishing this task.
You seem to be construing process with government systems and outcome with government policies, but both entail processes and outcomes. And I would say the processes and outcomes of all possible policies are much more complex than the processes and outcomes of all possible systems. It's just everybody has focused on policies, so the processes and outcomes of systems aren't as well understood. |
