The Trias Politica, the conflict solving method of De Montesquieu, is only useful for people with money. Good lawyers are expensive. De Montesquieu, a member of the French elite, invented democracy to solve problems in his circles and not to increase the possibilities of masspeople on a fairer world. The influence of citizens is minimal, life is to a great height determined by democratic laws but citizens lack the power and the money to use or change rules and laws.
voting system makes direct influence nearly impossible. The 99% are
therefore hardly interested in politics, they are not allowed to think
or act independently. All is controlled from the top. Only leaders in
the executive power are elected, most people in other high positions are
not-elected and influence of citizens on their decisions is very small.

The growing number of rules and laws in our democracy restricts the freedom of citizens more than that of the elite. The rising level of education made the 99% more conscious of their inferior position. So regulation was needed to keep the masses under control. To maintain its power and its privileged position, the elite has to restrict the freedom of the masses because otherwise it loses its special place in the world.

Temporary alternating groups of independent and autonomous people who are interested and involved in the same subject can actively approach decision takers in their private environment in such a way that these decision takers will take the arguments of the 99% into account. These masspeople act on the time, the place and the how they choose and about the subjects and the leaders in which they are interested. Now citizens transfer their power to elected people. These elected people are immune for any influence from the masses, not in election time and certainly not after elections have been held.
In my book The Power of the Autonomous Human, theory and practice of attacks on persons” (free downloadable from my site “Down with any Elite” http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis I describe several actions and some (small) successes. People who have participated in those actions got more self-esteem because they knew they have become less dependent on the caprices of the people up there.

settled for Creative Disturbance. (see
Chapter 19 of the mentioned book). There are many original ways to make
your wishes known but political parties are only obstacles on the way to
more freedom. The media are important for conflicts inside the elite but
in a conflict between elite and masses they side mostly with the elite
because they are the servants of the 1%.
