But the proposition that "language and writing have been brought to completion" is nonsense on stilts, and only a complete airhead (or a Mountain View lawyer) would support it.
Arg. That wasn't my point.
My point was our kids view of the world will be lacking a lot of stuff as everything is switching to digital including the fact that certain manual skills that we currently all rely on like cursive and now handwriting in general are being downplayed in the sad excuse for what we call an educational system.
I guess add that to the list, we got a well rounded education, our grand kids already aren't and their kids most certainly won't.
Case in point, they keep dumbing down science books as I've got an antique from the 30s that teaches you how to extract raw elements and make <gasp> gunpowder, thermite, maybe even nitro and all that stuff was censored out by the 70s and I'm sure it's very censored today because if you teach them too much they can actually do things with it.
