The responsibility to be informed

If we accept that citizens are not primarily causally responsible for our poor information environments, they may still have a remedial responsibility to fix them.

  • If responsibility could be articulated without blaming citizens, there is no guarantee that citizens would successfully practice their responsibility to be informed.
