Thanks to the modern Janecek voting method, we seek solutions most people can agree on.
Multiple votes will better formulate your opinion. When we select single option, we only say one word. Once we can choose more preferences, it feels as if we answered with a whole sentence. By using multiple votes, we also express our willingness to agree with others.

If you could ask all the people in the world one question, what would it be? It is nice to think about, but seems unrealistic to make it happen. Well, with modern technologies and the Internet, it is not so unrealistic anymore.
