What drives you to advocate for this? What personal interests in it do you have?

There are three separate but related impulses that drive me to push for a Citizen Legislature.

First is simply to engender more thought about what a ‘representative democracy’ is supposed to be. I thought it meant that the government was not supposed to be separate from the people.

Second is to eliminate my own lifelong complaint that no one in any elected ‘representative body’ represents me … since none of them are people who would not run for election. My whole life I have ‘stood outside’, disassociating myself from what I can only deem to be systematically an illegitimate government.

Third is to hasten the emergent, evolutionary social drive towards … not ‘equitability’ but … inclusivity. The sooner ‘we-are-all-in-this-together’ is operationally realized, the better off we all will be.
