Engineering students realize that clear definitions bring good grades. Nobody needs to explain to Elon Musk that political power is the time derivative of the capacity to kill lots of people. Yet even engineers, immersed in and subjected from all sides to organized social pressure, often have trouble grasping the essentials of spoiler vote clout. Still, it is all around us. (link)
Small parties back then all sought power to coerce. Libertarians seek rights, but the leveraged power of spoiler votes has not changed. Libertarians cast fewer than 4000 votes in 1972, but 4 million in 2016. In 1972 Nixon sent enslaved youths to bomb women and kids in distant countries. Today there is no draft, and way fewer soldiers are sent by Republican and Democrat party politicians to rain down bombs on the other side of the planet without a declaration of war. Our platforms also called for repeal of plant leaf prohibition laws. Now, after fifty years in which Libertarian votes increased a thousandfold, way fewer people per capita are shot because of plant leaves on orders from politicians. These are two examples of incremental change brought about by individual voters who effectively prefer freedom to violence.
