When they taught us to read, they never told us that we wouldn't be able to stop.
And so they took us out of our homes and compelled us to go to school to learn to read and write. A trauma from which we will never recover. We will die literate or else.
On the other hand no law compelled us to learn to use the telephone, the television, the radio, the ipod or the computer. We learnt to use the electronic media naturally and intuitively at home.
Literacy is the mark of Cain, the scarlet letter branded on our forehead, a curse we carry all our lives until our souls were saved by the telephone, the television, the radio, the ipod and the computer.
