In his new book, Ill Winds, Larry Diamond adeptly describes the rapid erosion of our nation's democracy and how this disintegration is accelerating the progress of democratic reform. He puts Ranked Choice Voting at the top of his reform list, calling it the “master reform,” the one most likely to break the logjam on all the other reforms.
Larry Diamond is an American political sociologist and leading contemporary scholar and author in the field of democracy studies. At Stanford University, he is professor of Sociology and Political Science, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, where he directs the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law.
