A simplified proof of an impossibility theorem

Philosophy of Science 40 (2):175-177 (1973)
In this paper I prove a theorem which is similar to Arrow's famous impossibility theorem. I show that no social welfare function can be both minimally majoritarian and also independent of irrelevant alternatives. My condition of minimal majoritarianism is substantially weaker than simple majority rule
