All decisions that affect everybody should be decided by direct democracy

Direct democracy is where everybody gets an equal say about what they want to do, like Brexit where everybody meets together and decides to either stay in the European Union or leave the European Union. I agree with the statement 'All decisions that affect everybody should be decided by direct democracy' because if a decision was made that affected everybody, it could affect a few people in a way that is harmful or bad for them. What I mean by this is that, because of the decision that was made, peoples lives could change in a way they don't like so it is important to get peoples opinions of what they want or what they think is better and why. An example could be when slavery was abolished completely in 1948 when the United Nations general assembly adopted universal declaration of human rights, including articles stating "No one should be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.".
