A must read article!
Here is a quote from that article:
Rule by those who’ve managed to gain temporary control is not democracy, it’s arithmocracy. In such a system, those who’ve “won” rule, and others have no real say.

It is the most sensible, most doable cure for any confrontation. When you go to that blog
