There seems to be an assumption that the public needs to be educated so that they will vote the right way. Which way is that ? Why , of course the way that the self appointed guardians of what is right think . And is it unfair that people vote from the gut , and not from the head ? . And who's to say that those who claim to be voting from a firm grasp of the information are not really also voting from the gut. Was it Churchill who said that democracy was the rosy form of govt apart from all the rest ?
