Its taken as given that under “first past the post” we don’t have equal voting power and therefore we don’t live in a democracy
Even with direct Proportional Representation, we still wouldn’t have a democracy.
The only way to create a true democracy is to give every citizen a sizeable disposable income.
He who has money to buy, has the power to dictate what goods/services are valuable and “worth paying for” and what goods/services are not valuable and not “worth paying for”.
Give every citizen a sizeable disposable income and see what sort of society we create then.
In fact I’d rather live in a society where every citizen has a sizeable disposal income but no voting rights than the other way round.
Why should the privileged few dictate what is valuable and what isn’t.
If you had a sizable disposable income what would you spend it on?
