Iraqi Elections Coverage
It looks like the mainstream media coverage of the Iraqi elections is heating up. To be sure, there are lots of issues to be resolved and worked out. Most of the stories I've read usually include a quote from an Iraqi "man on the street" about the January elections. In that spirit, I remind my readers of the following:
The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.
Of course, that quote needs to be contextualized with Churchill's larger worldview of democracy:
Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. 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 others.
