Grown-Up Countries Don't Use FPTP
Think proportional representation is a bizarre system only for new-age radicals? Most modern countries use a PR or a mixed form of PR. In fact, new democracies (such as those of the former Soviet block) have invariably chosen a system such as these when deciding on the best way to run their new democracies; all avoid First-Past-the-Post (FPTP) as an electoral system. The USA, Canada, and the UK are the last major Western democracies still to use it (and the UK is changing). Here's just some of the countries using a form of PR (with specific type - find out more at IDEA):
