In new democratic countries without a history of mass public elections, Tribunocracy may offer a better way to introduce democratic self government. In countries that have not developed an effective objective inter-mediating media, providing voters adequate information to understand the issues in play and to cast their vote wisely is a major impediment. Tribunocracy makes it possible to provide the selected Tribunes more information than can be provided to the entire eligible voting pool. It also provides an opportunity to educate and inform everyone who observes the broadcasted Tribunal Convention.
Because nations without a recent history of democracy are less invested in massive public elections, they may be more willing to embrace Tribunocracy. Just as countries without extensive phone lines eagerly leapfrogged to wireless phones.
Countries that have enjoyed state of the art democratic government, should consider that if they do not progress, they may be surpassed by countries practicing newer more effective forms of democracy.
Where fraud and voter intimidation are major election concerns Tribunocracy is a way to better safeguard the integrity of the process. It is much easier to monitor a small group of Tribunes, prevent their intimidation, and count their votes, than to do that for thousands or millions of scattered voters. The public’s ability to witness the Tribunal Convention through live transparent coverage will be more educational than most mass elections, and may instill greater confidence in the fairness of the process and its outcome.
