Supposedly we're approaching a new golden age. Which, by the way, was matriarchal vs everything we've ever known which is patriarchal. For some, it is this reason that Hillary will win. Trump represents everything we've come from - male dominated, misogynistic, testosterone driven, etc. Not saying Hillary is a peach, but to some she represents a woman who is not so meek to get tromped on, yet not so strong as to be just like everyone else. She is a balance that is necessary to bring about the beginnings of change to a matriarchal society, which is a path to the return of the golden age.
I say "for some" as that's just a theory running around the 'net as to why she will be elected. Time will tell.
Generally speaking, this is an interesting thought on a representative democracy where people are actually happier voters and the system is more fairly represented without as much "jiggering" as happens today. Corruption is the rot that affects every attempt at fair and civilized living, so designing systems to negate corruption as much as possible seems to be a good theory. However, we would need to get past all the self-serving interests which lead to corruption in the first place, and corruption is just a form of crime, and no laws can prevent crime as criminals will either ignore the law outright or find new and creative ways to do what they do, but legally. i.e. all the shit that's going down now. Illegal as fuck - any normal person doing any of the shit these candidates do would and are prosecuted and imprisoned, often harshly. Yet, these folks make the laws, or rub elbows with those that make the laws, and usually also have many political connections and large sums of money. (resources - monetary and legal) In those situations the law loosely applies, if at all in certain circumstances.
Anyway, I digress. Check this out as it's an interesting thought. FWIW, Australia does this shit, oh, and voting is compulsory or you get a fine. So not only does your vote *actually* count, but you're happier because of it and everyone is forced by law to participate. Interesting eh?
