are analphabets and find books discouraging, there should be no
books. Or if only half can drive a car, no one should drive. Isn't
that taking democracy too far?
I don't think that protecting those members from learning is doing
them a favour in the long run. It isn't brain surgery, doesn't take
any special computer skills. A monkey can learn to press down a key
to get something it wants. It's more a matter of habits that are a
little hard do break, I think. When this new window business started
people went berserk because it wasn't the expected behaviour (and it
was rude too!). Now some people are so used to it they think things
aren't working if it isn't there. No big deal.
