“Wherever the people are well-informed," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "they can be trusted with their own government.” It was a new idea, a move away from the authoritarian dictatorships of monarchs. But what happens now, when science has become so advanced that it impacts all of life, yet so complex that relatively few people are well-informed? It's a recipe for disaster and the problem is cropping up worldwide at all levels of government, and on both the political right and political left.
