In a Republic such as the United States: the citizens duties are to pay taxes, vote, and (voluntarily) serve in the Military. Part of voting to keep informed on issues that relate to you, and to fact-check and confirm information from suspect sources (most cable news).

Depends on the system but the question is timely.

During the industrial revolution that relationship changed. We tried two different systems, Communism with central control and Democracy with Capitalism.

Both have now failed and the citizens have little real role to play in todays governments, at least the large ones.

The masses are very easy to manipulate and they are for the most part very ignorant of important issues. Should such citizens have any role in anything other than local government?
