People are different in regards to the knowledge they have, their age, their experience. At ConceptPaper.org we believe different people’s votes should have different weights and should not be equal. We call this Weighted Democracy.
To give examples we ask the following questions:
1. Is a 25 year old persons experience the same as a 70 years old’s ?
2. Is a person who has PhD in history and has taught history for 20 years equal to person who can’t read properly and has never read a book ?
3. Is a person who has raised 5 children and has guided 5 children till adulthood equal in experience to someone who is single with no children ?
At ConceptPaper.org we believe people are different and different people’s votes should have different weights and should not be equal. We believe this to be a valid concept and we think that a Weighted Democracy would be better then unweighted democracy.
