How will PIG deal with a vote saying that the richest 49% have to give everything they own to the poorest 51%? Or, more realistically, raise taxes on the top 10% to give to the poor. Then, the following year on the next 10%, and so on. The taxed minority would always lose, wouldn't they?
Does PIG require that all of the citizens vote for what would benefit the country? I suspect most would vote for what would benefit them individually, regardless of the impact on the country.
And how do we protect unpopular groups? Wouldn't PIG make certain groups illegal, or require their exile from the country?

Of coarse there are risks but security measures would be put in place. What they would be I don't know, I'm not technical enough. But is 'hacking' uncommon in today's governments? No, it's called lobbying.
