Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I perfectly agree that the educated minority should inform the majority. And this was also my point in a comment that I recently posted as a response to a diary called "The essence of Fundamentalism," that democracy is imperfect, but it is still the best form of government so far, that political and social think tanks have come up with. The ignorance of the people about political issues is one of its weaknesses.
But, still, people are not aware. And it is not their fault, but is still the reality. And as soon as they get informed and politically sensitive, I would welcome the idea that they take part in the decision-making process.

You don't call a lawyer, when you need a plumber, right? This is my point. People that does not have knowledge in a certain domain, should not be allowed to perform its tasks.
