|recommend book⇒Just How Stupid Are We?: Facing the Truth About the American Voter|
|Instead of blaming idiot politicians, he looks at the voter who selects these idiots. There is a fundamental problem with democracy if your electorate are clueless, wilfully-ignorant idiots. The main problem I have with him is he is a trivia buff and he thinks every American should know factoids such as how many years did Sandra Day O’Conner serve on the supreme court, or how many years before a senator must face reelection. Questions like that do not matter to anything practical. It would be more important to know things like how does it get decided how big taxes should be and who should pay them. How is it decided if America goes to war? He also assumes everyone should trust the same sources of information as he does and the fact they don’t is a sign of their stupidity. I tend to trust the same sources he does, but I don’t think you can ascribe stupidity as the reason people trust different ones.|
