Voting description

 While it is frequently desirable for a group to summarize its opinions via a vote, a decision by force will generally inflict harm. This harm can be reduced in several ways. First, political power can be decentralized to the maximum degree possible, enabling like-minded people to group together, “voting with their feet”. Second, voting, or at least imposing the results of voting, can be avoided. Third, when voting is unavoidable, more sophisticated voting systems (e.g. Approval, Range, and Condorcet) can be used to better capture a group’s true preference, and higher thresholds (i.e. a supermajority) required.
