I understand what was being said that theoretically people who are illiterate are wiser than those who are literate. And to me I understand where they are coming from and I agree with it to a certain point. Back when Socrates was actually alive I could see how that would be true or fairly accurate but in today’s world I would say that that isn’t true because of all the knowledge that has been discovered since Socrates did. In fairness that is a ton more information nowadays then there was before, therefore, people can’t be expected to remember it all.
On another note I thought the “medium is the message” is a very interesting way to look at things and I think if you look at things in that respect then you would definitely see something from a brand new point of view that you may not have thought of before. The thought that the medium is the message is an interesting one to think of considering most people pay attention to the actual message and don’t pay two minds to the medium. So theoretically they are always missing the intended message.
