Many millions of us are--increasingly, perhaps it is time to wonder why.
Throughout the ages it can readily be seen that selling dogma and belief is most effective when citizens and constituents are illiterate or isolated or overly preoccupied,,, and therefore not able to question effectively.
Their options are curtailed, limited... often reduced to accept blindly or face untenable consequence.
Thank goodness times have changed... but have they?
If not illiterate then to be so "busied up" and distracted by novelty--they are ill equipped to respond or participate in the process of forging their own destiny at the macro level and are inclined to accept prevailing change with resignation, even when forced change is absolutely against their better interests.
The question is begged - how can that possibly be?
In 2013, as I watch the world spin by, I wonder at how, in spite of improved communications and labor saving technologies we seem to be as much encumbered by illiteracy and disposable time constraints as any other period in time, and how... regardless of blatantly imposed travesties... populations remain oblivious to encroaching absurdity passed off as intelligent socioeconomic modeling. If not resigned... then willing to accept absurd edicts all but guaranteed to degrade lifestyle and personal freedom to choose and select.
Under even casual scrutiny, New World Order agendas such as agenda 21... programs explicitly for population manipulation literally scream... "bad deal." Yet said insanity remains oddly in the shadows almost as a mythical apparition rather than a hard reality--which it certainly is.
Often these agendas are supported by academic, theoretical idealism combined with seriously flawed or skewed statistical exhibits, these are so fundamentally impeachable they almost stun sensibilities and certainly insult any level of intelligence.
Yet such corrupt and misleading agendas prevail, bit by bit and drop by drop... implementation of insane elitist governance dogma and belief is tapped into place, enabled by created ignorance and apathy of the hapless victims.
And as the knowledge bases explode the means to acquire and comprehend it diminishes...
The phenomena of functional illiteracy and disposable time deficit is global and based on "result" is obviously desired by someone powerful, else if not premeditated then how can we be marching backwards at such an alarming rate?
It takes a cohesive effort to achieve startlingly abysmal result, no less that producing stunning success.
- About 133 million youth in the world are illiterate.
- Youth comprise 41 percent of the world's unemployed people.
I have stopped wondering why, the reason is as obvious as it ever was historically... when elitist power mongers determined to improve their lot at the expense of others... then subjugation through fear and intimidation was the engine whilst ignorance the fuel.
Purported improvement change... is an illusion effected with sleight of hand and glib commentary--
Funding "educational" programs does not equate to teaching.
Introduction of "new math" and "whole word" has illiterated generations who are now literally and figuratively lost in a world of management by consensus, where common sense is sidelined in favor of whimsical abstractions.
Unfortunately getting the message out is difficult, illiteracy ensures that, as does "too busy" to care, too stressed to think... one would not be blamed for thinking these conditions are purposeful, as is suppressed media and sentinel slur campaigns.
