Do we strive for perfection or do we settle for something less?

I reiterate, I am not, as someone has suggested, against democracy but I am against its infallibility.

Because it’s corruptible (in its current form) it’s obviously not as perfect a method of governance as it ought to be so what sense is there in adhering to an imperfect and flawed system ad infinitum, when we know it’s defective? I concede that, even in its current state it’s better than some alternatives but it’s still not perfect.

If Democracy literally means “rule by the people”  it is unquestionably up to us – the people – to find something better, or to perfect it.
