Consider, for example, the heated debates on how propaganda and misinformation have been recently used to lead people to question the results of democratic elections. Or the (more sober) discussions of whether governments are permitted to “nudge” their citizens toward beneficial behaviour in ways that seem to bypass their capacity to choose.
