Essentially they advocate that less public participation in governance is better. The public, they argue, are wholly incapable of making informed decisions that best suit the needs of the country and thus those decisions should be left to the political professionals and intermediary institutions.

So the minions should simply leave governance up to the political and professional elite and trust that their actions and decisions are in the best interests of the country. That's my take-away, anyway.

Any other take-aways? Thoughts?
