By having two different styles of government, Friedman thought the government would infringe on people’s individual rights. An author from a previous reading that would agree with Friedman, would be Thomas Jefferson. Friedman believed that capitalistic economies are the reason why society is freer than any other time in history. This is similar to Jefferson due to his asking for departure form Great Britain.
