Wisdom in a crowd
The Editor, My message is this: “Please come out and vote cause there is wisdom in a crowd.”
British mathematician Marcus du Sautoy demonstrates how accurate a group can be in the third episode of the Netflix series “The Code.” His experiment consists of a big jar filled with 4,510 jellybeans and 160 individuals guessing how many jellybeans are in the jar. As many underestimated as overestimated the amount but the total (about 722,383) divided by the number of individuals (160) resulted in close to the right amount of 4,510.
Apply that principle to politics and all our individual positions whether to the left or the right would result in a mostly desired outcome if more of us voted.
One way of rapidly assessing one's political position it is to go to the “Vote Compass” and fill out the questionnaire. It will not take long to find out how you personally fit in the political landscape.
Whether you stick to that position or not is up to you but please come out to vote.
