In the modern world the information appears to have the most important role since without it is hard to imagine the proper functioning of the society, economy and the state. It is especially visible on the example of the economy where the information becomes not only the most valuable commodity (that affects the competitive advantage) but is also separated as the independent category of the means of production and influenced the change of the paradigm of the economy and the process of management. Of course it is not about any random information but rather an asset that allows a single individual and the society alike to function properly. Such asset is a certain minimum of information necessary for its proper development that we call as the ‘informational minimum’. Unfortunately such minimum is not always (and not anywhere) provided therefore a disturbing phenomenon of informational crisis can be observed. It manifests itself in the shape of both decrease of quality and the amount of information, as well as in the crisis of the informational infrastructure and the institutional crises. The means of preventing this is the ‘informational order’ based on one hand on the order of hierarchy of function and on the other, (which is crucial) on the non-transferable human rights: a right to the truth and a right to the information. The provision of such order is one of the basic duties of the state and the institutions regulation social life, the economy and politics.
