Three Things

Three things have become perfectly clear to me:

1.  The Internet is increasingly a torture device.

2.  Bourgeois morality is despicable, petty, narrow, smug, and a thousand other things it was proclaimed to be one-hundred and fifty years ago.

3.  A person can have what they call "computer literacy", but be illiterate.  I.e., they are unable to read a text with understanding gotten by analysis and supplying historical/sociological/critical context.  Without real literacy, a mind becomes a repository for other people's thoughts. For that reason, what they call computer literacy is much less important than real literacy.
