People protest when they perceive unfairness, incompetence and especially corruption. In many societies, protest is suppressed. As a consequence, unfairness, incompetence and especially corruption tend to flourish in those societies.
Unenlightened leaders do not know the meaning of reasonableness.
Through an enlightened approach to deliberative democracy, everyone is given the opportunity to train to be an enlightened leader. In fact, you are being given that opportunity right at this very moment.

a horse race of all things, it appears to be an official and traditional inducement to gamble away time and money. In that way, it has much in common with many election campaigns.
Yet playfulness and creativity in themselves do not require anyone to spend money directly, not even on a ticket to an event.
You may prefer to sing a few relatively simple songs and skip around in a circle somewhere with a few friends today, or this evening. That is your choice, of course. No-one here would prevent you from making your own informed decisions.
How do you reflect upon the choices you have made through the years and seasons of your existence?
And where do you find people who think similarly to yourself?
An enlightened approach to deliberative democracy can only occur when people are willing to reflect upon a wide range of points of view, and experiences of life.
Why are so many people unwilling, or afraid, to do that?
There is always the matter of privacy to consider in an informed and respectful way.

Queen Charlotte has already asked the South Australian police to be on the lookout for a Nannerl lookalike using coarse language. If you locate the individual, please contact the authorities immediately. Nannerl has already been unfairly accused of using vulgar expressions in public. She is, of course, astonished that anyone could suggest such a thing.
Apparently the impostor has the ambition of becoming a singer. She has even been known to shout about it in the middle of sporting stadiums.
