Diversity is integral for developing a healthy society... But too much diversity in politics makes it very difficult for the various parties to reach a consensus on 'how the hell should we run this place', which leads to heavy compromise, which leads to nothing actually being accomplished.

There are principles everyone can agree on, like 'killing and raping should be outlawed'. Anything beyond that, unless it's something super obvious like 'no driving when you're legally blind', shouldn't be cemented in law. Common sense should prevail over volumes of laws. If someone is being shitty, the community can meet and address the problem.

Meaning people will start doing things for themselves instead of relying on their officials, most of whom are not even elected.
