Social choice theory seems to deny fairness of elections without an
adequate fairness criterion. The Oxford dictionary defines fair as
equitable, which is to say proportional. Obviously, then, according to
social choice theory there is no fair electoral system, because its
rules do not allow for the proportional count criterion of fairness. (It
is based on preference voting - necessary but not sufficient - Iain
Maclean, Democracy and New Technology.)
It recently occured to me that social choice theory is an ethnocentric
apology for the hounding of proportional representation from some 20
E-books (mostly available free or reader-sets-price)
Includes the series of books on:
Democracy Science (starting with electoral reform and research);
Commentaries (literature and liberty; science and democracy);
Collected verse (in five books).
