Germany already has PR. Why hasn't it succeeded?
[...] same level of slavery that the US ruling class imposes on the Germans today?
It's this kind of comment that I find totally useless and toxic, and honestly kind of xenophobic.
Germany is very successful in a great number of metrics; more so than the US on many.
Society is complicated, and while election reform is great and important, it's not the only factor and it's not a magic bullet.
It's not productive to start griping about certain (subjective, vague, and probably untrue) flaws in an entire country, and then blame those flaws on whatever mode of democracy they happen to enjoy. I think this is the rhetorical equivalent of pointing at China's superior ability to quickly build infrastructure (e.g. high speed rail) and then concluding that democracy cannot match autocracy.
This reminds me of the time that I told a certain range voting zealot that my alma mater uses STV to select its student council, and they retorted "must be why they're going down the drain in the rankings." Your comments, like the aforementioned quote, are false, toxic, vague, and unattributable to the voting method in use. I'm not at all surprised they pushed away a potential new member to this forum, which we desperately need. There are like 3 regular users and maybe a handful more sporadic users. This place is a ghost town; even personally speaking I don't plan to be very active here moving foward.
