This series by the always-awesome CGP Grey explains how our current crappy voting systems work and points at better alternatives. Which will make you feel both enlightened and depressed because no way is any current government going to allow this smarter methodology to happen.

  1. I’ve watched this series before, and it’s an enjoyable presentation. (Something about it doesn’t sit exactly right with me, although I’m not sure I can put my finger on it exactly. I think it might be an implicit assumption that political parties are coherent bundles of ideas that different people naturally gravitate towards rather than systems that co-evolve with whatever political system they’re a part of.)
