It’s an interesting primer. Some districts have already had judges influenced be usage of algorithms but they (the computer simulations) are far from perfect. But it’s a step in the right direction.

Our bigger issues remain:
1) the House has too-few representatives (numbers are capped, increasing population is not)
2) the Senate has too-many representatives (small state protections are used as a cudgel instead)

"If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us." Justice Robert Jackson
