Now I really want to draw attention to his conclusion that winner-take-all voting results inevitably leading to a two-party system.
I don’t think he has the entire reason, I think inertia and incumbency have at least as much to do with a two party system. But there is no doubt that we end up with a system that’s stacked heavily towards two parties and more and more government intervening with everyday lives.
My own solution would start with None of the Above, but I think CGP Grey’s ideas are worth discussing too.
I also think we need to move away from a centralized election system. We have fifty states, that means we have fifty laboratories to find the ways that work best. Please notice I did not say the best way.
Remember the goal is FREEDOM. If the institutions don’t work towards that goal, we need to get rid of the institutions.
