Comment on Elections should be done like Reddit instead of like Facebook/Google

I have thought about this myself and am definitely hoping to see this in action.

One of the questions here could be, however, whether this wouldn't lead to every minority being voted away, leading to a reduction in extremes, a reduction in variety. I feel like responding to this by saying that people may be more inclined to rather vote against the major competitor to their "stream" than vote down a smaller less threatening idealism.

Also, are you suggesting a system where every party can receive a down/up vote or just one up and one downvote per person?
