Same thing holds true for a national level. There are not enough people in office with enough technical knowledge in either area and thus we end up with folks in charge who lack the ability to relay, explain, communicate and teach some of the principles of technology and how it impacts the everyday life of the average citizen. They have staff members that work on these projects, but it’s always so much better to be able to have such knowledge relayed from the “horse’s mouth” if you will, thus we end up with this, voters who don’t know what to vote for as well.
