I found this article and wanted to share. This platform is clearly for highly literate people...and the 2 percent also need to have enough free time to enjoy the resources here.
There is so much good stuff here, and interesting exchanges that I want to post comments on....plus my own thoughts and questions...and yet life calls me to other fun projects and activities.
If anyone is wondering why there are so few people actively engaging, this could be why. Any individual who is curious to study Epicureanism is in the top 2 percent reading literacy level. Many people will never encounter Epicurean philosophy simply because they can't. (This article breaks down the five levels of literacy and what kind of competency each possesses).
Should Epicurean philosophy be made more accessible?
2% have high literacy levels.
This year, for the first time ever, PIAAC combined the fourth and fifth literacy levels. That’s because there were no longer enough people at the highest level to count.
"Across all countries, only 2 percent of adults performed at Level 5 on many of the variables in the literacy and numeracy scales,” researchers report. (Because of the low number, these are included among the 12% in Level 4/5).
This (2 percent) is the only group that can identify from search results a book suggesting that the claims made both for and against genetically modified foods are unreliable.
Write for these folks, and you’ll miss 98% of your readers!
