What a silly statement. Cut off from a vast trove of knowledge. Language and the written word are changed with the on going generations. Cursive!!!
Lost knowledge!!! Why don't you go on about lost knowledge of Greek, Coptic or even Latin.
Let me tell you how it goes. 20 years ago calculators were not allowed into classrooms. Then they were allowed into classrooms but not in exams. Now
they are allowed into exams. That's progress. It's the Adams apple theory, once bitten it cannot be un bitten.
I'll give you a better example. My niece is a teacher and went to teach in Dubai. The school children did not use pen and paper, they all had lap
tops. When she showed them how to write with pen and paper she was severely reprimanded and told to teach them with the lap tops only.
The world goes on, no matter how much you want it to stay like your world.
