[liberationtech] Freedom in the face of power and a vanishing vote

Hi
    Michael S,

    My own personal opinion is that the formalitys of Information Theoretic
Social Decision Theory can be applied here..... This t gain significantly
more insight as to what is not working in our current socio-political
system....   Yes even in America..... There seems much is currently boken
within our system....and it is not hard to use mathematical induction to
show that such is so...So in that sense your statement that things actually
work in our American democracy...seems more like wishful thinking than
critical, formal analitc review.

   I think we need to look more closely at our Social decision process to
gain such insights,
Have you read our paper in Voting Matters #
27<http://www.votingmatters.org.uk/ISSUE27/I27P1.pdf>
..?
