Democracy’s Monopoly Commons vs Rule of Law’s Market Commons

The value of democracy in the selection of commons decreases with the size of the population voting.

Why? because the size of the population increases the diversity of interests. And because democracy allows us only to choose between priorities from within common interest – it’s a monopolistic means of choosing which commons to produce.

So when we increase in scale, we require markets to conduct exchanges between different common interests, not monopolies, to ignore our uncommon interests.
