I believe more and more that this applies for economy as well.

I think Corporatism is this as well.

I tend to believe that we need a good, balanced number of smaller parties. Diversity !

If we have lots of smaller partiesm none of them can take over a whiole government like in Hungary or in Italy !

But on the other hand a bigger number of smaller parties could also lead into more blocking of laws … Espcially when quarrels begin between parties …

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
