How did Van Reybrouck know about lottocracy?

On Sunday, September 29th 2013 in a Dutch TV series named Buitenhof the word Lottocracy (Dutch: lottocracy), although casually, for the first time was used in public in Holland. There was an interview with David Van Reybrouck about his new book ‘Against elections’. Great, that the idea of ​​Lottocracy was mentioned for the first time in the Dutch media. The broadcast can be viewed by clicking below:

However, van Reybrouck did not mention in the program nor in his book, that the idea of ​​lottocracy has already been discussed extensively in the book ‘The World Solution for World Problems’, especially in the chapter ‘A Concept for Government’. The book was already published in 1988. The book is available as an electronic book at:

The book can also be read directly on Internet at the address:

The book was originally published in 1988 as ‘private print’ under the ISBN number: ISBN 90-9002592-8. The book is as hard copy available at The Library of Congress in Washington DC, The British Library in London UK and the Royal Library in The Hague. For the latter, click below:

The author was born in Nijmegen on 9 August 1931 and died in Nijmegen on 13 February 1992. His real name was Johannes Leonardus Mijling. He was addressed as Jan.

Lottocracy as discusssed in the book is a form of representation for the entire world (global representation, mondial lottocracy), but the author has told me personally that lottocracy could also be used at the national level (local representation). For example, it would be a perfect solution for the Israeli-Palestinean conflict.

A protocol for mondial lottocracy is described in the section: A Concept for Government: The author uses the word ‘lottocracy’ also in the sections Justice and Rights & Duties, but also in the chapter A Concept for Government.

I sent an email through his publisher to Mr David van Reybrouck, in which I pointed out to him the existence of the book, but so far he has not responded.

The author of the book The World Solution has written a different book about Tao and Stoa (Eastern and Western philosophy, the same wisdom in different jackets):

This book consists of 256 (= 2**8) short stories called TaoStoïcs. You can read in the alphabetically register that there are six Tao Stoics dedicated to lottocracy.

For a quick idea about lottocracy one could read TaoStoïc 255.

It is remarkable that the author David van Reybrouck did not mention the word ‘lottocracy’ in his book. How did he know about the word ‘lottocracy’ when he used it in the TV interview?
