Note that Condorcet is not perfect either. Large groups of coordinated
voters would still have an edge, and if one of them reaches 50% of
voters they can decide the whole election. It's just (much) better at
letting the majority declare who they dislike, which is a good way to
compensate groups representing 25% of the voters.

In short, even with Condorcet we'd still probably have to address the
low barrier to entry issue.
