In continuation of yesterdays post Public decisions, a small further thought: One party, two parties, more parties? Political systems emerge around parties of common interests. We are used to a multiparty system with more or less stable parties organized around a certain value-system. Parties give structure and continuity independently of the leading figures, but they tend as well to decouple the voter from the executed power. More parties seem to mean more democracy, but on the bottom line it depends more on the structures behind the curtain, because even with the flaws of the bipartisan system and the concentration of the power to one winner in a seemingly unfair manner, the system has means of correction and the underlying votes of the people count.
