Pluralism is a political philosophy that affirms diversity of thought within a political body. Pluralism institutionalizes a system of governance fostering the peaceful coexistence of different interests, convictions, and lifestyles. Most United States citizens live in One Party Dominant districts with little to no choice in who governs us. One Party control is not a real democracy. Full Democracies are pluralistic.

Proportional Representation systems are designed to represent and include everyone - a fully diverse cross section of the electorate, disperse concentrated power, hold individual elected officials and parties accountable, always reflect voter intent, facilitate compromise between parties, elect more women and minorities, and produce government bodies closer to the median of the public's views. Proportional Representation in Multi Member Districts destroys Gerrymandering and the Spoiler Effect.

Full version. A much lighter read than Zinn's People's History of the United States with more constructive solutions and no charge to purchase.

Zoom version. This link is for the shorter version 63 slide Zoom version of "Inclusive Democracy for the 99% Zoom" (10.7 MB .pdf), meant for presentations. The number of examples and slides have been reduced. Some of the text has been edited out. It still has a lot of text and example systems, which can be skimmed over during the presentation.
