About the Kleroterion Forum

Kleroterians are a world-wide group interested in the benefits of random-choosing. Are elections the last word in Democracy? No! Just like the juries used in legal cases, so a random selection of citizens could fulfil many functions caried out by public officials and elected representatives. Over-subscription at the local school? More tests for the kids, or interviews for the parents? No! Let a lottery decide who gets those places. These are just some of the ways random choosing, or a lottery as it is usually called can make life better in our everyday lives. Join the debate
