So roles are played at different places and times by activists, experts, bureaucrats, local and national politicians, journalists, and ordinary citizens. Parkinson himself recognizes that he has not fully solved the scale problem, because it is still the case that the consequential deliberation of anything like all subject to a decision has not been achieved. Yet if he has not solved the problem, he has at least shown how it can be ameliorated, and that deliberative legitimacy can be promoted, if never fully achieved in any ideal sense.
This simulation may not hold if the deliberation so organized fails to capture the differentiated character of political interchange, that is, the fact that in reality people encounter each other largely within or across groups, as opposed to an undifferentiated forum. ) However, even if we grant the simulation claim, it does not solve the scale problem, because decisions still have to be justiﬁed to those who did not participate. Moreover, nonparticipants would need to understand the logic of random sampling, and the idea that everyone has an equal chance of being chosen.
The discourse of environmental justice could then contest, engage, and change other kinds of environmentalism – as well as join them in a larger contest against the discourse of industrialism. Social movement networks do not merit uncritical celebration. In particular, they raise the specter of what Parkinson (2006a: 167) calls “thorubocracy” – the rule of those who can shout loudest and longest. And as Chambers and Kopstein (2001) remind us, civil society – and so public space – can also be home to, for example, networks of racist hate groups (just as electoral systems can be home to racist voters).
