Anonymity, monotonicity, and limited neutrality: Selecting a single alternative from a binary agenda

Abstract

Anonymity and neutrality conflict if the number of individuals is even and a single alternative is selected. Limited neutrality, anonymity, and monotonicity imply majority rule when the agenda is a two-element set.
