11/12/01 Krist Novoselic is very active in politics and he
recently created a website on the topic of 'inclusive democracy'. The site
currently contains a transcript of Krist's speech
inclusive democracy, and links to related websites.
Inclusive democracy is briefly described as follows (taken from the
site): "The inclusion I'm talking about is using a Proportional
Representation electoral system. Proportional Representation can also be
referred to as PR. PR makes it so a party or candidate need not come in first to
win seats. A voter constituency that shows even ten percent at the polls could
merit representation. Where our current system has small, winner take all
districts, PR systems have larger multi-member districts where the votes are
distributed proportionally. Where our current system makes losers out of
millions of hard working Americans, PR can make most voters winners." The
past presidential election in the US (damn it... Gore should have won...) proved
that there are some problems that the system has. The tour is still going
and Novoselic will do speeches at the following places:
November 14: University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, WI at 7:30 PM.
November 15: St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN at 7:30 PM.
November 19: University of Washington in Seattle, WA at 8 PM.

Holland. During the tour, they have played Nirvana songs only, and will keep on
doing this until the end of the tour. The next show will
be played on November 1st in Groningen, Holland. After that, they will go to
Enschede and Leiden, also in Holland. The Paradiso show will be
broadcast on the Dutch channel SbS6 on December 22. In an interview it became
clear that by mid November, the exact date is uncertain, a CD will be released of their Nirvana performance.
