Reader's Diary #2159 - Tobias Haglund: Direct Democracy

 Tobias Haglund's "Direct Democracy" has a satirical tone and tackles themes of democracy including the ways it's manipulated to give the façade of democracy. 

But speaking of façades, I'm also hesitant to call it a short story as there's not much of one and instead it comes across more as a way to make political points using the guise of a story. Perhaps that's why it felt a little condescending at times, even if I agreed with many of the ideas presented.
