No More Karate Electoral College!!History . Karate . Politics
You read right, it is all the rage, we are tired of going to competitions and having to deal with this insanely unfair Karate Electoral College. The last competition I went to was so unfair, the vast majority of the people at the competition chose me as the winner. It was clear by the crowds reaction, by the energy in the room, even an electronic poll they were running (American Idol style) had me the clear winner. So what happened? Some judges ruled that my opponent won and I lost! That was the most unfair experience of my life and the crowd agreed. Wouldn’t you? Shouldn’t the most popular contestant win? Shouldn’t the people be able to choose the winner, I mean they are watching the fight, they know!! That is why we need to get rid of the Karate Electoral College!
Alright that didn’t happen quiet that way. I am from a very small club, low budget, low body count. What chance do we have at a competition? Well if it is run fairly then a pretty good chance. I have been to both, fair and unfair competitions, they look the same from the outside, they look the same to the crowd. The illusion part is easy for the crowd, the contestants always know, but who do they complain to?
Democracy sucks. The big clubs/schools, with the 500 students win. The small clubs/schools don’t have a voice. Democracy is High School, there are the popular kids (who can do anything up to and including murder), the normal kids (geeks – perspective people) and then there are the wanna-be’s (that is the crowd that want to be part of the popular kid club but are to self-deluded to see that they never will be and that the popular kids aren’t really that nice). Yes I stereotype 😉
Perhaps, a popular vote wouldn’t be all that fair for anyone other than the person who can gain 51% support. In other words the club/school who brings the most members has the best chance of winning. Not very fair for the smaller clubs/schools! Does that mean the Karate Electoral College is actually more fair?!
