I came across two interesting but connected quotes from Winston Churchill recently (or at least I thought I had). Both very relevant in current times.

The best argument against Democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.


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 for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time ...


Then in doing a little bit of due diligence - something I do far more often today - given our era of "fake news" and "alternative facts", it seems there is no record that Churchill ever made the first statement :-)

But two interesting quotes nevertheless regardless of author.
