The Swiss practices a system of direct democracy. It allows the people to decide on the laws that govern their lives. The decisions are taken at referendums held every three months.

This article in the World Economic Forum explains how the Swiss system works.

This is democratic and works well.

In many countries, the politicians work for vested interests or are corrupt. They do not want to have truly democratic arrangements to work. They want to preserve their power and privileges.

I hope that more countries will adopt the Swiss system of direct democracy.
