In a direct democracy, voters are going to be expected to directly provide input to many more government issues. If we acknowledge that the world has become a VERY complex place, how do we address the issue of insuring voter ability to understand and comment on complex issues? How do we insure they are acting in the "best interests" of all the people and not just thinking about themselves?
