  Representative democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Representative democracy is a form of democracy founded on the exercise of popular sovereignty by the people's elected representatives.
It is a theory of civics in which voters choose (in free, secret, multi-party elections) representatives to act in their interests, but not as their proxies—i.e., not necessarily according to their voters' wishes, but with enough authority to exercise initiative in the face of changing circumstances.
Representative democracy is often contrasted to participative democracy.

 [No title]
Representative institutions necessarily depend for permanence upon the readiness of the people to fight for them in case of their being endangered.
Obedience to a distant monarch is liberty itself compared with the dominion of the lord of the neighbouring castle: and the monarch was long compelled by necessities of position to exert his authority as the ally, rather than the master, of the classes whom he had aided in affecting their liberation.
But while it is essential to representative government that the practical supremacy in the state should reside in the representatives of the people, it is an open question what actual functions, what precise part in the machinery of government, shall be directly and personally discharged by the representative body.

 Representative Government and Democracy
According to Professor Robert Dahl, the beginnings of representative government "are to be found, notably in England and Sweden, in the assemblies summoned by monarchs, or sometimes the nobles themselves, to deal with important matters of state: revenues, wars, royal succession, and the like.
In fact, the "institutions of representative democracy removed government so far from the direct reach of the demos that one could reasonably wonder, as some critics have, whether the new system was entitled to call itself by the venerable name of democracy" (Dahl, 1989, p.
Representative government enabled a shift of the democratic stage from small city-states to large nation-states, and it has been viewed by many as a desirable solution to the competing needs of an effective but also accountable government.

 Bakunin's Statism and Anarchy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The evolution of the Bolshevik government from "representative" government to an explicitly stated and politically justified "dictatorship of the party" is another case in point.
As such, Bakunin's warning that representative democracy simply hides the rule by a few party leaders is still extremely relevant, particularly as anarchists have a clear and valid alternative to it.
He stands for representative government as it is impossible, he argues, for everyone to vote on every issue (not that anarchists argue for this!).

 The Social Security Representative Program
Representative payees provide a vital service to our beneficiaries.  Misuse in this program is extremely rare and historically has been found to be less than one one-hundredth of one percent.  Nevertheless, that is no consolation to a beneficiary who has lost his or her much needed benefits nor is it acceptable to SSA.
If possible, we generally appoint a family member to be the representative payee-preferably in the immediate family.  If an immediate family member is not available or would not serve the best interests of the recipient, we look for another interested relative, such as a niece or nephew, or friend to serve as representative payee.
The Representative Payee System (RPS) is a centralized computer file containing information about individuals and organizations providing representative payment services and the beneficiaries that they serve.  It is an integral part of the representative payee application process.  The RPS has been useful for investigating fraud, suitability of payee applicants, and identifying trends.

 Representative Democracy
In that connection, the lack of contradiction between representative democracy and participatory democracy was mentioned, as representation and participation have been issues raised since the beginnings of the system of democracy itself and, in particular, since the eighteenth century.
Among significant features of representative democracy were mentioned the effectiveness of human rights, the rule of law, and the separation and independence of the branches of government, and it was suggested that there was a need to further the enhancement of the democratic system beyond such features.
There was agreement, too, that one factor contributing to the loss of credibility of the forms of representation had been the inability of representative systems to solve the serious economic, social, and cultural problems that had affected the most vulnerable sectors of society and the inability of such systems to achieve true development.
