But try it, you will see that it won't even get the required seconds to
start the vote. And if it does, it will largely fail anyway. 

As I said, we all have agreed to abide by the social contract, you'd need
a serious rationale to convince me that this is coherent with our
long-term goal.

Either we trust the democracy or we don't. The 3:1 ratio is not here to
protect us from insanity, it's only a matter of making sure that we all
agree if we want to change the direction in which we're headed.
