The Metaphysics of Dissent

Tripod Sillyseason offered parliament a proposition. If the vote on a particular bill goes at least ninety five percent on one side, he said, I can design a system that will lock out all opposing votes. I can, in effect, make such votes unanimous, which would make parliament appear stronger and more cohesive to the electorate. Parliamentary officials mulled over Tripod’s proposal. They asked if such a system could be deployed in general elections, enabling members to be returned with unanimous support from their constituents. Tripod bowed his head with deep ceremony. Yes, he said reverently, it can be done.


go, Mario. Chilling, particularly the reverence.
