Abstract: Among the millions of words uttered and written on the subject of democracy, Winston Churchill’s are among the most famous: “Democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” [4] The occasion of the remark – it was made on 11 November 1947, when the great wartime leader spoke for the opposition in Britain’s House of Commons – is a reminder of how far the world has since travelled. Yet the passing of six decades notwithstanding, mankind is still subservient to the classical dogma embodied in Churchill’s phrase: that democracy is synonymous with universal suffrage. It was always open to question. But today, new and evolving technologies enable us to discard it – not to abolish democracy (who would want to do that?), but to enrich democracy with more effective, more innovative and more moral forms of enlightened government across the world.
