Ki- Adi, I think it has more to do with the media than anything else. Most people today just want to sit around, watch T.V., and other lazy activities without expanding their minds because they don't have too. People are just too lazy these days to pick up a good book and read. I also think peer association has something to do with this, as well. As I said before, a lot of people don't want to look like "book worms" or "nerds" in fear of damaging thier reputation. And, then you have the people who say "its pointless to read". I have no idea where they came up with that but these are the same people who play sports all the time and fail half or most of thier classes in school.
