The choice, my friends, is ours.

Is it really?

Americans were given only two choices for their president in 2016. Neither choice was great.

British were given a choice to leave or go. They weren’t offered a way to help fix whatever they perceived was wrong with the EU. And the EU itself is not exactly regarded as a proactive agency to fix things.

Could our lack of choices be related to how we are governed?

Or is it really possible that somehow we, the common people, can bend the will of our elected representatives?

The real choice is, to me, whether or not we start building of new system of governance — to replace those outdated models of democracy.
