Why is pluralism considered to provide representation as a “by-product” to group membership? And what does it mean that groups provide policy representation as opposed to legislators, which Madison suggests provides representation through elections? In addition to my question why is it also common for critics of pluralism to mention that small group “organized special interests” have an advantage in securing policy representation from the government than large latent groups?...
I don't know if this answers any of your questions, but I know that I'm pretty happy with the way that the NRA represents me.
