Wouldn't that give you the same result as a direct popular election, "mob rule" as you call it?

What I like about "mob rule", is that after the initial stages where a dumbed down, general population had made a few painful mistakes, and it had sunk in that they were big people now, that they might start demanding things like a higher educational standard, so as to make for a better informed, decision-making process. This would also contribute to such aspects as transparency in government, and before you know it, you'd be back living in a democratic society again.
