Make Democracy Great Again: Liquid Democracy
Liquid Democracy allows for compulsory voting with the lowest possible burden.
Compulsory voting makes a democracy to be actually representative to the will of the people.(even if using delegates)
A democratic system is about finding the General Will of free people in their own true interest, hence a necessity of compulsion to vote rather than intrinsic motivation is a contradiction in itself.
The Liquid Democracy version of compulsory voting is very different to direct/representative compulsory voting, so we may not get the perceived benefit of increased voter engagement.
Compulsory voting magnifies topic ignorance.
