We are used to say that we respect and want and have democracy as our decision making system. We should not take though in plane face value the statement that we do have democracy; In ancient Greece, from where the word democracy is adopted, they implemented democracy with various methods that included as a main technique the 'random draw" (an experiment of randomness) so as to decide which person would take which role. This method is based on the assumption of almost equal spiritual maturity and abilities of the candidates. It was for them a very honest and strong weapon against crypto-malevolent secrete agreements, scheming, conspiracies etc.
If e.g. the contemporary USA democracy was to function as the ancient Greek Athenian democracy, the next should happen
We hardly use any such methods in what we call democracy in the present times, with the excuse, that it may not be under the principle of meritocracy. Neverthless it may be the case that we might need such techniques of ancient Greece, more than ever. There are may types of modes of the democracy, for small, medium or large population size communities or societies. Direct democracy, indirect, with voting, with random draw (experiment of luck) or not etc. What is more important is not only the "how" of the democracy but also the "why" of the democracy; I other words what was the real intention of those that introduced and practiced democracy, because this means that we may need to invent new modes of democracy, suitable for our situation while keeping the basic spirit and intentions of democracy. Transparency, trust and accountability are of paramount importance, as long as they are not abused and used in a regressive and harmful way rather than progressive way.
The "why" of the methods of democracy, include
Any establishment of a World Government , BEFORE the establishment of a planetary direct e-democracy, and before the establishment of a planetary Parliament is obviously a planetary dictatorship.
2) The economic (which is an oligarchy, of the statistical shape of power or Pareto statistical distribution, with the 20/80 rule)
3) The military power (which is a hierarchy)
4) The power of the church (religious power, which is again a hierarchy)
The description of the next group, about direct democracy, gives a detailed explenation why, direct democracy is a basic human right.
