Ong Sessions at MLA 2006 and CCCC 2007

This web site is the most informative and thought invoking that I have fallen upon in orality and literacy. As a university student of Theology and Philosophy I encountered serious difficulties in writing and even doing my exams something I had never experienced before. I now believe and indeed it has been confirmed by Fr. Ong that trauma can cause such difficulties. Hans Kungs declaration on Globel Ethics mentioned that the world is in agony. This perhaps explains the huge increase in literacy and writing skills in recent times certainly here in Ireland. It is expected that by 2016 half of our population will be unable to read. Is it time to do as God intented that is listen to "The Word" in communities, Quahal Yahwah, and are books only taking up space and collecting dust on shelves? Thanks for a wonderful insightful article.
