Overview

Karunaratne, who has worked in government administration in his native Sri Lanka and several other countries, was visiting his son in California during the 2000 election, and was amused to watch the World's Single Superpower be defeated by the task of counting its own votes. Though the manipulation of the US Supreme Court was the immediate cause of the election failure, he says that the administration of the entire election process—registering voters, holding elections, faulty voting machines, recounts—preclude finding the real winner in any election.
