The current system allows voters not to compromise - you vote for the crazies you love, and never have to consider another viewpoint. In Australia you can vote for the crazies, but also have to choose 2nd, 3rd, etc, preferences: if the crazies lose, do you prefer Likud, Labour or Kadima? When the crazies do lose your vote goes to your 2nd choice, and so on. Result: a more thoughtful population elects a more intelligent government! Change or collapse, Israel.
