Hello, fair readers! If you’ve come across this website intentionally, you’ll know me, Ned Crosby, as the American inventor of the Citizens Jury.  Besides the Introduction there are three sections to this website:

SECTION 1: Intellectual background of the Citizens Jury process and the Citizens Initiative Review.

SECTION 2:  Some ways in which the Citizens Jury process, along with other deliberative methods, can make a major improvement in the current state of democracy.

SECTION 3:  Whole new democratic systems.
