Does democracy necessarily entail voting, or is there another way? What value can voting have when it is based on totals, and the assumption that those candidates with the most votes are the representatives? Does a person have a say when his or her vote is diluted by thousands, or even millions, and the person's decision-making is limited by political influence and manipulation?....
Before a prestigious society made up of top academics and distinguished professionals, Peter Thompson, a publicly unknown thinker and visionary, presents nine lectures which critiques the western political system (as defined by voting) in order to put forward a unique and more viable option where the hierarchy of political power is replaced by a new democratic paradigm of More Reasonableness (a fully elucidated process in which ideas rather than ballots are cast).
What ensues is a lively, thorough, diverse dialogue, which touches on the very bases of society and democracy.
“A somewhat controversial yet visionary interpretation of democracy, The Political Evaluator is well researched, well presented and encourages readers to think beyond the existing limitations of our current western political system. Garvey proposes a thought provoking ideology, worthy of serious consideration and unavoidable deliberation.”

"The Political Evaluator presents a bold and very needed alternative to our present western socio-political climate. This book needs to be read not just by those who operate in the theoretical or philosophical, but by those who are living in and acting in this world we all inhabit."
