Well I guess that since your're telling people why they should learn how to read and write thats better than the gung ho approach I see many people talk about nowadays. At least you're not looking at the world from the barrel of a gun.

When people start to die in masses who will bury them...
I think you've hit the mark. My husband ad I are always talking about how the younger generation(even people our age) don't know how to do things the simple way anymore. We don't always make our own bread or chop our own firewood...but we know how! Most people don't. Heck, how many people know how to cook at all? When I go to the store I am always amazed at all the convience foods people are filling their carts with.
In not sure what you mean about Amish protection. Most of our neighbors are Amish and they're armed to the teeth.
My best friend teaches 5th grade at a private school. Every year at Christmas...all the kids come back with new iPhones. About a week into school after Christmas break she has to threaten the kids with talking to their parents about taking their phones away because all of a sudden all their essays have "U" and other text short hand. So, all the technology is definately making people lazy.
