Iraq has been a victim of assassinations aimed at high level officials, particularly representatives of the Iraquiya party which has the most seats in the recent elections. This is in contrast to a relatively low level of violence in Iraq. One advantage of a participatory democracy system is the deemphasis or zero high-level targets for this type of rage and evil. a Participatory Democracy system would have to spend less money on Secret Service (or the equivalent) protection.
