The deliberative decision taking fetish often overlooks that the core
issue is contestability, not deliberative consensus.
A perfect servant gets me water exactly when I want it, he does not
bother me with decisions or commanding him.
I advocate that a democratic order should become a perfect servant. Then
voting is just a tool to contest a current rule and re-educate the
governing persons about the genuine nature of their master-servant service.
