Knowledge Helps Citizens, Secrecy Helps Bureaucrats

19 Feb

Who knew that Ralph Nader was so right on about so many things, at least he is in the Ralph Nader Reader that I have to read for my consumerism class.

“What they fail to realize, however, is that knowledge is power and that secrecy is one of the principal tools which an unresponsive bureaucracy can use to perpetuate its existence and its way of doing business, regardless of what reforms are being demanded by the public and elected officials.”
