Good Morning, Chris Benham
I want to thank you for this critical insight:
"An election for a powerful political office isn't a jury-
like collaboration among voters to select the best winner.
Rather it is competition between factions of voters who are
trying to elect their favourites and/or prevent the election
of some candidate they consider relatively bad."
You explain, with great clarity, why faction-based systems betray the
public interest. On a site devoted to electoral methods, it is a
tragedy that no effort is devoted to creating methods that let the
voters collaborate to select the best advocates of the common interest.
