Liquid makes democracy smarter and more accountable.

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 the other forms that have been tried.

Winston Churchill
