Very interesting your proposal, at the same time educational. I would like to know a little more about this proposal.

The Rules, directions, and relevant info are all included in the post above, and in each post. Please read them all. If you have any further questions, please ask.

populair: sommigen geloven dat de populaire mening de democratische mening is.
bevolking: het lijkt democratisch om, bij het nemen van beslissingen over een gedragslijn, de wil van de meerderheid van de bevolking te accepteren.
publiek: de mensen zijn echter niet het publiek, maar zijn er woonachtig en behoren toe - een inwoner en kiezer van het openbare forum.
publiciteit: in echte democratie krijgt de pluraliteit van meningen de nodige publiciteit; de populaire mening overheerst, maar het is niet de enige mening van het publiek
