There has been a lot of good discussion on DG4 so far, but I'm not seeing questions asked about anticipated participation levels. I think it is very important to get this rolling now before we work on structure of the government, because it is critical to know how many people will be involved and if they see any showstopper issues. Do you plan to participate in DG4? If yes, is this no matter what, or are there any conditions you need to see fulfilled to ensure your participation? If yes, to what degree do you plan to get involved? Running for elected office? As an appointed official? As an active citizen? As a passive citizen, other? If you're undecided, or not planning on participating in DG4, what things are pushing you away, and/or what things are missing that would lure you in? To get started, I'll answer with Yes It's pretty definite, but depends on situation at home, and I'd say that a precondition is having enough good opportunities for meaningful participation. This has never been a problem for me, but wanted to mention that a reduction in number of available positions might push me away. Will almost certainly run for office as soon as I'm sure the home and/or work situation won't prevent me from performing my duties. Otherwise plan to be active citizen unless I'm completely slammed and can't participate at all. Please feel free to add additional questions and answers if you feel they will help.
