Perfect timing! "From Majority Rule to Inclusive Politics - Electing a Power-Sharing Coalition" (Springer; Heidelberg and Berlin) was launched in Dublin on 23rd February, three days before Ireland's most 'chaotic' election results ever - 'chaotic' that is, for those who believe in majoritarianism
So, like Spain's now, (see also 2016-10), like Belgium's a few years ago, Ireland's post-election parliament is multi-party... and hung! Hence, an Irish Times podcast, A Shock to the System, 28th Feb, on http://www.irishtimes.com/podcasts plus an article on the matrix vote etc. on 5th, then this letter and this one on 8th and 15th March.

If you ask the wrong question, you may get the wrong answer. As in this press release.
The Dutch referendum on 6th April was a nonsense: those voting 'yes' were thinking about Ukraine, those voting 'no' were more concerned about the EU.
We have got to say 'yes' to something. Decision-making should be based on ballots of 2- or more- options, on which the voters say 'yes' to at least one option, or, at best, in their order of preference to more than one. Thus can we identify the option with the highest average preference, which is, ah, the consensus option.
