Sample text

I will not list the different variants of these arguments since they all take similar paths by underlining the dangers of bad statutes enacted by the people. 81 Claims that initiatives are likely to harm political minorities underscore the inherent absence of real, face-to-face deliberation in direct legislation. In this view, deliberation and the need for political compromise among the repeat players in the legislative arena can better prevent hate-promoting and radical legislation. The lack of representative mechanisms in the initiative process may unleash dormant primal forces of momentary majorities and enable them to overcome the obstacles they would have faced in the normal legislative process.

While it is true that there should always be fear of tyranny of majority, the question is whether the likelihood of such an occurrence outweighs the potential of, and the gains derived from, direct legislation. 37 In contrast, I find the argument concerning the rigidity of initiatives and their inability to accommodate many interests of substantial weight. Any attempt to objectively address the initiative process must consider this argument and take it into account. As I discuss later on, the theory of initiatives I advance answers these fears and minimizes them.

Notwithstanding the professionalism of most initiative sponsors and drafters, the fact that a legislative proposal cannot be altered during the process of its enactment cannot be said to contribute to the flexibility required in accommodating different interests and positions. Additionally, no extensive research is required to conclude that most voters are likely to shape their opinions on any given initiative primarily on how it is presented to them in the Toward a Legal Theory of Initiatives 37 media and not on what its fine print says.
