TL;DR: Small NH town has its school budget slashed in half when libertarian activists are overrepresented at annual town meeting. Town organizes, reinstates school budget, saves the day. Town residents say the lesson is they should be more engaged with local politics.

Maybe. For me the takeaway is that direct democracy is bad, because you run the risk of the crazies taking over at each and every meeting. Better to vote in sane people to do consistent work.
