It does seem unrealistic to ask *all* citizens to inform themselves about every important political issue. Perhaps it is not even desirable -- there are other things in life besides politics, so one has to ask about the opportunity costs. So a better solution may be to demand that just *some* citizens do the hard work, and that the others listen to them. If we don't trust established elites, perhaps Citizens' Juries or other small-scale deliberative-democratic endeavours would be better?
