  4. The Incomparable | I Am Not a Crackpot (Episode 410)

    Inflammable means flammable? What a country! It’s a perfectly cromulent thing to do, to pick quotes from “The Simpsons” in draft form. So we have assembled a learned panel of people who haven’t seen the show in years, bribed them with plenty of Malk (with Vitamin R!), and set them to choose their favorite lines from the most quotable TV show of all time. We hope you find this episode excellent. If you don’t, don’t blame us—we voted for Kodos.

  8. #34 - We use the worst voting system that exists. Here’s how Aaron Hamlin is going to fix it.

    In 1991 Edwin Edwards won the Louisiana gubernatorial election. In 2001, he was found guilty of racketeering and received a 10 year invitation to Federal prison. The strange thing about that election? By 1991 Edwards was already notorious for his corruption. Actually, that’s not it.

    The truly strange thing is that Edwards was clearly the good guy in the race. How is that possible?

    His opponent was former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

    How could Louisiana end up having to choose between a criminal and a Nazi sympathiser?

    It’s not like they lacked other options: the state’s moderate incumbent governor Buddy Roemer ran for re-election. Polling showed that Roemer was massively preferred to both the career criminal and the career bigot, and would easily win a head-to-head election against either.

    Unfortunately, in Louisiana every candidate from every party competes in a first round, and the top two go on to the second - a so-called ‘jungle primary’. Vote splitting squeezed out the middle, and meant that Roemer was eliminated in the first round.

    Louisiana voters were left with only terrible options, in a run-off election mostly remembered for the proliferation of bumper stickers reading “Vote for the Crook. It’s Important.”

    We could look at this as a cultural problem, exposing widespread enthusiasm for bribery and racism that will take generations to overcome. But according to Aaron Hamlin, Executive Director of The Center for Election Science (CES), there’s a simple way to make sure we never have to elect someone hated by more than half the electorate: change how we vote.

    He advocates an alternative voting method called approval voting, in which you can vote for as many candidates as you want, not just one. That means that you can always support your honest favorite candidate, even when an election seems like a choice between the lesser of two evils.

    If you’d like to meet Aaron he’s doing events for CES across the US over the next two weeks - RSVP here.

    While it might not seem sexy, this single change could transform politics. Approval voting is loved by voting researchers, who regard it as the best simple voting system available.

    Which do they regard as the very worst? First-past-the-post - precisely the disastrous system used and exported around the world by the US and UK.

    Aaron has a practical plan to spread approval voting across the US, and it just might be our best shot at making politics work.

    The Center for Election Science is a U.S. non-profit which aims to fix broken government by helping the world adopt smarter election systems. They recently received a $600,000 grant from the Open Philanthropy Project to scale up their efforts.
