Friedman, markets, education

Dr. Milton Friedman addressed ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) last month.  CSPAN saw fit to air his remarks which I saw on cable yesterday.

Dr. Friedman mentioned how important it was for citizens in a democracy to possess a basic functional literacy about how their government worked, the principles upon which the government was founded, and how to gather information necessary to make sound decisions for themselves.

So, does it not then follow that government should make access to information a priority?
