It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.

-- Winston Churchill

It's true that I like to poke fun at capitalism from time to time, but, in all seriousness, Winston Churchill was right. "Democracy" -- which for most westerners means "democratic capitalism" -- has a compelling advantage over other systems: It is the only form of government which permits direct election of the people who don't represent you.
