The short answer to this question is an obvious and resounding 'no.' Citizens who have been numbed into a narcotized trance by fake infotainment media, a media controlled mostly by corporations whose bottom-lines would be hurt by a critically thinking electorate, are not the kind of citizens capable of preserving our democracy. Neither are the victims of a public mis-education system which has sold its soul to the high-stakes testing zombies; who take orders from, you guessed it, corporations.
