What would be the alternative?

Another option is hybrid direct-representative democracy.
Representatives vote on issues (and have X% say, preferably 40% or so) and the people vote on the same issues (with the rest of the say, preferably 60%). This helps to prevent tyranny of the majority, keeps some of the positives of representative democracy, but also directly empowers every citizen.

Consensus is one option.

Edit: Just posted a couple different anti-democracy pieces that suggest interesting alternatives.
