Questions

1. How does this passage help us understand politics?

2. Can we expect politicians and policy-makers to have “knowledge” or is only “true judgement” possible?

3. What knowledge do we, the citizens, have that our leaders do not; and what knowledge do they have which we do not? Which is more important and what does that mean about democratic (i.e., electoral) foreign policy?
