Information in a text format all but disappears, giving way to its visual embodiment. First, newspapers went out of business, having, predictably, lost the battle with the Internet. They have disappeared in developed countries. Books are going to face the same fate soon. People’s ability to perceive textual information worsens: electronic gadgets have taught them to visualise, which is easier for comprehension. Educational programs are based on visual information, which makes them more primitive and shallow. An in-depth education on the basis of textual information has become a rarity, available only to the rich - it has strengthened the stratification of society according to education and intellect.
