Unfortunately, this is also my generation.
The vast majority carry devices which track their every move. They submit their ideas to huge media conglomerate companies, allowing these spy organizations to comb through their information to find new + improved ways of targeting advertising, also known as a „personalized“ service.
Plus: there’s even more than that: They are so ignorant, they refuse to acknowledge that advertising really only has a chance to be successful if the person being advertized to doesn’t realize they’re being manipulated. At least 9 out of 10 such ignoramuses maintains that advertising doesn’t affect them at all.
This is my generation… – roll, skreek!
I find illiteracy a nuissance. Without literacy, effective communication is much more difficult.
Sometimes there is a great irony to the widespread complacency with respect to the extremely low levels of literacy. Let me give you an example. I have a friend who is a very good writer (I know it’s hard to believe, but I think he can write even better than I – at least in German [his native language *). My friend recently said to me „I think it’s time for me to get popular“. I find this very ironic, because he is always trying to protect his privacy, he wants to remain anonymous, etc.
People who want to remain anonymous are mostly hiding from their friends. The government, retard media and a multitude of spy organizations already have everyone on the planet pretty much nailed down – most people couldn’t hide even if they tried. By seeking to remain anonymous, the complacent illiterate generation is preventing their friends from finding out anything about them… but they nonetheless cozy up to spies of every ilk imaginable.

(*) German is also a native language for me, as I grew up speaking two languages, … but I grew up mostly in the United States / American culture, so English is perhaps a little more native.
