But now you demonstrate the effectiveness of the totalitarian regime to
refocus the direction of a country in a short space of time. Similar
have happened in FPP democracies when the government makes a large % of
governing house. This happened when the Lange labour government took
in the 1980s. They swept into power with a massive majority. While in
they sold off government assets, slashed the government department
completely changed the tax basis of the economy. Drastic stuff.
In order for the same thing to happen in the US, you would need to get
same party with major control of the president, the senate and congress.
This could happen but it is rare...Without the major swing you need to
consensus politics and promote some of the other party's ideas to get
As I understand it MMP was deliberately chosen for German politics after
so that they couldn't get a party dominating the political scene as
with the national socialist party in the 1930s.
The more houses and layers of government a country has the less able it
to shift. Australia is so over governed that it's not at all dynamic in
ability to change. A visit to an Aussie supermarket is like a trip back
