This candidate for a system of equity has been rejected, even in countries that call themselves communist: Supplying no automatic incentive to work and save, it requires an extensive control of the worker by the administration. By definition, positions of authority cannot be allocated equally, and, in any case, people in authority would take the lion’s share for themselves. The system of equity in every country where majority rule voting is maintained is the allocation of the national income in markets with historically given property rights, including the right to the produce of one’s labour.

Majority rule voting is unsuitable for allocating a sum of money among a group of people or for allocating the national income among the entire population, for no allocation beats every other allocation in a pairwise vote. When voters are short-sighted, whoever sets the voting agenda is, in effect, empowered to select the allocation of income. When voters are not short-sighted, any majority of voters acting in concert can grab the entire national income for itself. The problem will be examined in two stages, first for a community with five people and then for a large electorate.

People may favour a large armory to protect themselves from imaginary dangers, or they may favour a small armory because of a false sense of security. There is, however, an interesting case where voting resolves differences of opinion to produce the outcome that is best for everyone. The Condorcet jury theorem Voting in the context of this theorem is not to reconcile conflicting interests, but to discover a common interest presumed to exist. Imagine an election with two candidates where it is in every voter’s interest to elect the better candidate, where voters differ in their opinions about which candidate is best, but where every voter has a better than fifty-fifty chance of recognizing the better candidate.
