Election method: one of the most fundamental issues
The election method used in our public elections is one of the most fundamental issues of our society and affect the very nature of our democracies.
Our elected representatives have tremendous power over us and over our whole society. It is their job to make the laws that govern us. As long as we use an election method that favour party politics, and that make it easy for media and special interests (which are not working for the Common Good) to control the outcome of the election, we will be facing an uphill battle trying to work on the issues that we truly care about: personal liberties, environment protection, economic justice, etc.
There are many good politicians out there, who would receive the support of the electorate. The problem is that the system is rigged against them.
