Illiteracy among adults is a big problem. It`s not that they cannot read -
many choose not to, seeking the most simple, easy-to-understand
methods and missing the principle. Like children gobbling candy
they end the gorging session feeling sick.
I just felt this needed to be repeated.
I believe this is due to the climate of our society. The masses are programmed to be or become consumers.
Phones and Cars (among other things) aren`t just marketed as a means to communicate, or a way to get from Point A to Point B; these things have Personalities.
The consumer is told that what he sees in front of him is all that he needs, an all-encompassing solution if you will.
So it doesn`t surprise me at all to see so many people looking for "the miracle pill" or "the already built package" that`s going to make them money as soon as they unwrap it or set it up.
Marketing is something many people fail at. I believe this is because, in lieu of the above, so many people are taught to be on the passive side of the equation- getting sold to, and not the active one, where they are doing all the selling.
The fact that people aren`t taught to think a certain way, or to possess a certain mindset could be a leading reason why many people fail to function with a particular mindset at all (i.e. the one that`s going to make them money)
