Problem

Underutilization of popular wisdom

Other Names:
Untapped community wisdom
Unshared practical wisdom
Unrecorded popular wisdom
Nature:
Because there is no way to utilize all of popular wisdom in forming common decisions, the basis of consent for determining social priorities is reduced. This leads to a stratification of people into groups which view themselves either as the elite or as victims.
Problem Type:
F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
