interestingly, all those things that you list in the paragraph above are
not intellectually beyond the reach of the majority of the people. They
only need to be told about it. I could imagine classes in digital media
literacy containing such things on secondary school level. Lobbying
governments to implement such aspects in curriculae would be a
worthwhile task so that miserabilist assumptions dont come true
