By applying those values that are used to characterize participation democracy it will be shown whether the local participation has actually increased. The possible scarcities in the organisation structures will be illuminated. A normative libertarian discussion aims to find alternatives to the existing establishment. Among other things it is revealed that formal democratic participation should not necessarily be prioritized over the benefits of individual freedom and efficiency.
