We Can Vote!
The following anecdote shows the application of democracy to places it usually doesn't go:
A few years ago, John Derbyshire said:
A group of kindergartners are studying a frog, trying to determine its sex.
"I wonder if it's a boy frog or a girl frog," says one student.
"I know how we can tell!" pipes up another.
"All right, how?" asks the teacher, resigned to the worst.
Beams the child: "We can vote."
I await with interest the coming poll on public beliefs about the Continuum Hypothesis.In possibly-related news, Bill Gasarch is collecting votes on The Axiom of Choice vs. The Axiom of Determinacy.
I'm dubious about the power-set axiom in the first place.
