When Sanders talks about the literacy rates in communist countries he needs to be asked if he supports freedom of speech and thought.
Will people be allowed to write books critical of him and communism?

Will The Bible be available for anyone who wants to read it in his communist utopia?

Will the works of Milton Friedman be available?

Literacy is meaningless in a totalitarian society.
