Which is the best form of democracy?

Most of us have some form of "representative democracy" but did you know that there are also other forms of democracy?

And within a representative democracy there's an entire upheaval of versions of it.

Direct democracy and Delegative democracy are some examples of versions other than the representative system.

I myself am a proponent of a form of deligative democracy called "Liquid Democracy"

So, which democratic system is the best according to you and why?

Here's a Wiki on the different forms of democracy, I advice reading it to get an overview of the topic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Types_of_democracy
