Illiteracy and novelty - The hotbed for manipulation and blind subservience!

Do you have misgivings about the intentions of your governance? Are you feeling somewhat apprehensive about current events? Is legislation making less and less sense to you? Are you experiencing a sense of decline rather than betterment.

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.







Stay tuned...

  1. 11 Facts About Literacy in America

    Two-thirds of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. Over 70 percent of America’s inmates cannot read above a 4th grade level.

    1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read.

    As of 2011, America was the only free-market OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) country where the current generation was less well educated than the previous.

    Literacy is a learned skill. Illiteracy is passed down from parents who can neither read nor write.

    Nearly 85 percent of the juveniles who face trial in the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate, proving that there is a close relationship between illiteracy and crime. More than 60 percent of all inmates are functionally illiterate.

    53 percent of 4th graders admitted to reading recreationally “almost every day,” while only 20 percent of 8th graders could say the same. (2009 study)

    75 percent of Americans who receive food stamps perform at the lowest 2 levels of literacy, and 90 percent of high school dropouts are on welfare.

    Teenage girls ages 16 to 19 who live at or below the poverty level and have below average literacy skills are 6 times more likely to have children out of wedlock than the girls their age who can read proficiently.

    Reports show that low literacy directly costs the healthcare industry over $70 million every year.

    In 2013, Washington, D.C. was ranked the most literate American city for the third year in a row, with Seattle and Minneapolis close behind.

    Long Beach, CA was ranked the country’s most illiterate city, followed by Mesa, AZ, and Aurora, CO.

  2. What the numbers say

    For years Scott Murray crunched numbers on illiteracy and administered two major international surveys at Statistics Canada. And what his numbers say is that Canada's situation is particularly shameful when you look at the two worst categories:

    Nearly 15 per cent of Canadians can't understand the writing on simple medicine labels such as on an Aspirin bottle, a failing that could seriously limit the ability of a parent, for example, to determine the dangers for a child.
    An additional 27 per cent can't figure out simple information like the warnings on a hazardous materials sheet, the kinds of warning that set out workplace dangers such as risks to the eyes and skin.
    In total, 42 per cent of Canadians are semi-illiterate. The proportion is even worse for those in middle age. And even when new immigrants are excluded, the numbers remains pretty much the same.

    But what's worse is that for the past 15 years there's been scarcely any improvement.

  3. "The fact that as many as seven million adults in England have more or less severe problems with literacy and numeracy is staggering, and indeed shocking in this rich country," he said.

    "It is sad reflection on decades of poor schooling and past government policies."

  4. It is true that illiteracy is becoming a serious problem in industrialised nations. This is surprising as most people think that this is a problem only in under-developed nations such as in parts of Africa and India. Illiteracy is related to many other problems such as poverty, over-population and governmental corruption.

  5. People who are well-educated aren't smarter than people who aren't. They - or more correctly their parents (who instilled in them the need for a "good education" in the first place) - are just whores to whoever is currently in power. They go to the schools run by the elite. And they swallow all the self-serving garbage served-up by that elite as knowledge and science, etc. And if they faithfully reproduce that garbage at exam time - they'll by rewarded with qualifications and better-paid jobs doing the day-to-day sheeple management for the elite.

    However, the people who do this aren't smarter than those who don't; they're just more self-serving and psychopathic. Give them $100,000 per year - and they'll happily imprison, vaccinate, "educate" or shoot the lower-class sheep as instructed by the elite.

    So a 16-year old girl who gets herself pregnant and spends the next 20 years on benefits raising kids isn't half as dumb as the 16-year old nerd who struggles for years to get a law degree - and then ends up a lonely and bitter old maid. The "slut" ends up with the most valuable thing you can have (kids, love and family, and the time/freedom to enjoy them). The nerd ends up with nothing but loneliness.

    So in my book, they're both dumb (in the sense that they should both be aware that they're both cattle being farmed by the elite - though almost certainly, neither is). But the "slut" is arguably doing a much better job of grabbing some happiness for herself and her kids than the nerd is. And thus, the poorly educated slut is smarter than the nerd (even if she can't add 2 and 2).

    Intelligence and education are two different things.
