The surprising thing? In a recent primary in New York, some people had trouble with the new method. It’s not that the method of voting is particularly difficult. The problem is that we’ve trained ourselves to be RIGHT. To have “our candidate” and not be open (or pushed) to even consider that there might be an alternative. And to feel stress when we need to do the hard work of ranking possible outcomes, because that involves, in advance, considering acceptable outcomes that while not our favorite, would be acceptable.
I don't find this surprising. Or actually a problem. As we say in software development: this is a feature, not a bug 😁 Forcing people to consider their actions, to weigh up possibilities, and simultaneously breaking down tribal barriers? Feels like win-win!
