    Not all of it!

    Your solutions are flawed, I think, by calling for subject specific legislatures.

    The problem is one of proper categorization - always challenging and always evolving.  The legislatures of today will be inappropriate in X years where X is inkown.  So you need or only a mechanism for deciding in legislative specialties, but in addition a mechanism for updating them periodically.  That's a much more difficult task then counting the population.

    I call for direct representation, person to person, with multiple levels.
