Result? Averaging from several different readability formulas, the site estimates that I write at a “college” level.
Quite frankly, as far as I’m concerned, that indicates that I am at least semi-literate. Given the fact that a mere 15% of the U.S. population qualify as “proficient readers” — I am pleased to (at least in principle) be part of that 15%.
There’s something horrifying about the fact that 85% of the U.S. population is either totally illiterate, or only semi-literate. In combination with the (nearly) ubiquitous absense of “critical thinking skills”, the relentless mollycoddling of the gullible, etc. — let’s just say: the Trump candicacy makes perfect sense.
(Not that Hillary is any great shakes: a corrupt, “Third way” corporate shill is “better” than a proto-fascist blowhard like Trump, in the same way that being gang-raped and left for dead is “better” than being torn limb from limb by of wolves.)
Quite frankly, I am in a bad mood.
