Mind's Eye Re: Separatists, separation, independence and freedom

In Swizerland, referendums are preceded by public discussions in the media by interest groups presenting their pro and con view points.  As well each voting ballot comes with a booklet outlining the pro and con views of what is toi be voted. The Republic and Canton of the Jura is one of the cantons of Switzerland created in 1979 after a referendum of the French part of the canton of Bern separating from the Bern canton.

Would everyone voting have accurate information on the issues?  this would certainly take a great deal of organization.  If the group is ethnocentric or egocentric, chances are the majority rules method would not be a good idea.  In a worldcentric society where members are able to put the good of the group before their own if necessary, it may work, but this is a highly evolved group.  Here in the US, political campaigns count heavily on herd mentality and voters who are not worldly being swayed by negative and inaccurate information.  Hence, the Koch brother's ability to buy election and a congress filled with politicians for hire.  I agree, the ideal is much greater than the practical application.
