HL, fresh air vs. avoiding a draft - synthesis: open a window in another room.
HL - citing for "selective descriptive representation" (oversampling possibly underrepresented, disadvantaged cognitive minorities) cf. what JM calls (after A.H. Birch 1993) "microcosmic descriptive" (pure sortition) which JM feels is "too utopian" (in HL's words?). Selectivity would supposedly "enhance the substantive representation of these disadvantaged groups' interests as well as improve the self-image of those communities or increase the polity's de facto legitimacy [presumably with those groups]".

HL: quotes Mill saying this assembly should be "a fair sample of every grade of intellect among the people" rather than "a selection of the greatest political minds in the country" (Mill 2010 [1861]: 74-75).
HL, cites for those " agonistic pluralists" who "argue that problem-solving does not exhaust the tasks that representatives have to accomplish [...] a lot of politics is in fact about bargaining, the defense of particular interests or, even, more fundamentally, an existential clash of worldviews and values..." She goes on to say that this view is still "parasitic on a deliberative approach [....] For politics to be possible at all, rather than pure “agon” or war, there must be some fundamental domain of rational agreement to begin with."

HL, citing, says many political theorists say "a plurality of opinions and enough social heterogeneity for the quality of group deliberation [...] protect collective decisions against the risk of group polarization"
