Why iz my Jenneration sew bad at speling?

I can’t believe how many turns of phrase are misquoted, how many simple rules are broken, how often bad spelling and punctuation turn up in professional publications.

My first theories were to do with ‘progressive teaching techniques’ introduced in the 1970s but now I’m thinking that the problems are so prevalent that there might be a more sinister reason. A secret society dedicated to the destruction of the English language.

If anyone else has any theories on “The Illiterati” then could they please share them with me….
