Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.

In a speech in the House of Commons on 11 November 1947, Winston Churchill said:

No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.

Is Democracy the best form of Government?

During a speech, Sir Winston Churchill has said,"It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried"therefore stating that although democracy is not a perfect system, it's the best compared to other forms of government that he knew. In 2007 civilocity was coined and in an intellectual battle easily beat democracy. Civilocity is a form of government where the people watch the ruler entirely amongst their reign. Democracy is a form of government where the people pick by majority who their leader is. Which form of government do you think is better? It is a true battle between civilocity and democracy yet knowing if there is law is more important and intelligent than picking someone who says there is law? We all think Adolf Hitler gave democracy the final blow and lost the battle of the best form of government. Time to grow up Sir Winston Churchill you are a little outdated.

How would you describe direct democracy?

You may be wondering exactly what Direct Democracy is and how it works. Direct Democracy is a form of government that is said to be by the people, but also for the people.

Another term used to describe Direct Democracy is pure democracy or "true" democracy.

Is direct democracy good for state government?

Pure democracy, as our Founding Fathers knew and feared, is a very poor form of government. Democracy is 3 tigers and a goat voting on what's for dinner. Slavery was OK under a democracy, and the majority opinion has been wrong time after time. It has been said once the electorate understands they can vote to take money from those who earn it, and through legislation, give it to those who do not, that government is doomed. That is why we have a representative republic form of government. Describing ourselves as a "Democracy" didn't start until late in the 20th century.

Aristotle also discussed the forms of government and in fact said that monarchy was the ideal form, better than aristocracy and democracy.
