Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Voting Machine

Machines that tell you how to think (media machines) are old school. Now we’ve got machines that tell you how to vote, like the Wahl-O-Mat here in Germany.

Wahl

Just fiddle with a few parameters and out comes your vote for you. The rest is history.

That there have been cases in which operators have never managed to get the “preferred” party to come out that they actually prefer is another story. They (whoever they are) are still working on the details.

Es soll jedenfalls schon Nutzer gegeben haben, die den Wahl-O-Mat Dutzende Male bedient haben. Und nie die Partei empfohlen bekamen, die sie tatsächlich präferieren.
