Learn to trust people

I see similarity in what Jarvis is referring to and what is happening in India, where so called intellectuals were taken by surprise with stunnning blow to their political predictions.

If you do not trust and respect the people, then you don't -- you can't -- believe in democracy... or capitalism... or education... or art... or reform theology... And if the people don't read what we write, then maybe we should find a new way to write it

It's absolutely fatal to democratic theory to believe the public is incompetent
