Division of Muse Relations: "Most Citizens of the Star Wars Galaxy are Probably Totally Illiterate | Tor.com"

Most Citizens of the Star Wars Galaxy are Probably Totally Illiterate | Tor.com:

A nice little proven-case article here about how illiteracy is why the Empire could take over and turn Jedi into legends so quickly. Which is one of my biggest peeves about the prequel movies--I always wondered why they were thinking of the Jedi as some long-lost thing and why the Empire was never questioned before when it was, like, one generation and there should have been people who remembered beforehand. But this article argues that illiteracy means people will believe whatever they're told because they can't get their facts any other way, and rumors become the truth.

Food for thought!
