Not Everything Should Be A Sound Byte
I'm starting to get some complaints about my habit of posting long articles from other sites, using all them big words that hurt people's heads, and which make them scrooch up their eyes trying actually to read blocks of type, which makes their heads hurt as well.
I'll get into this at greater length later on, but you want it short and sweet so you can wrap your mind around it in a few bytes? (Bite? Not sure which is the correct spelling in this context.) Anyway: here it is:
We are already so dumbed-down in this country we are functionally illiterate. Many of you literally cannot read and understand articles like the last two I posted. You were never taught how and you were never made to read in America's horrifying public schools. It's not your fault you are an ignoramus, but you can correct it through an effort of will. Do it.
The solution to that is not for me to dumb it down further. The solution is for you to force that weak and flaccid attention span of yours to concentrate, read the posts, and figure out what they mean by using your brain. Your brain is like any other organ or muscle. If you don't use it, it grows weak and flabby. If you do use it, your brain and your comprehension will bulk up.
I keep telling you people to man up and get some courage and some self-respect, enough to act instead of sit there staring at the computer terminal like a brain-dead zombie. But you also need to man that brain up of yours and learn to read a block of type for content, like our ancestors did. You know, back in the days a hundred or so years ago when they ruled the world and made real revolutions?
