This is the best explanation of gerrymandering you will ever see - The Washington Post [feedly]

We finally have people waking up to the gerrymandering problem, but they have not yet realized that it's inherent in creating single-member districts, and that the wrong problem to work on is how to gerrymander less--the right problem is how to overcome centuries of primitive democratic tradition and move to full representation by electing from multi-member districts, so that the majority rules but minorities are guaranteed a voice, regardless of where they live. 

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
