When I create the People's Republic of Bobbi, every elected office-holder and every candidate will be required to take a quiz on current affairs every week, possibly Monday morning. It would cover what happened and perhaps public reactions to events.
There wouldn't be any passing or failing; there wouldn't be rewards for the best scores or punishment for low scores. Not from the government. But the scores would be published in every newspaper and on every news site. If some state or district or the nation as whole elected a nitwit, we'd all know. And making fun of them would be protected activity.
It wouldn't solve every problem, but we'd all have a better idea where to look for solutions.
