Most Americans will be barely literate in 2012.



Gregory Benford : Author
"Most Americans are barely literate, think in images rather than symbols, and think the future is something that will happen to somebody elseā€¦"

In 1987 the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future sealed into a time capsule predictions for 2012 made by a number of science fiction writers. The capsule was extracted and opened 25 years later, in 2012.
It's estimated that 14% of Americans are illiterate. Source: http://www.livescience.com/3211-14-percent-adults-read.html
