Writing is such a valuable tool in any society, country, home, school, and practically everywhere. Writing elevates a whole society. It make the people more educated and it easier for them to educate each other. It can also be used to teach anything. Those who knew certain things or had honed certain skills could write about their findings and help others to learn those same tasks and educate themselves. Writing can be used to record History. For historians ancient writings are invaluable! They help us understand the thinking of the people in that time and the events that took place. Writing is very useful in that it can relay messages to those afar off, such as loved ones in another country. For growing societies it would be increasingly useful for people to be able to make contracts so that there would be no doubt about the agreement between two or more parties. Another helpful aspect of writing is it makes it possible for people to be able to articulate clear a hypothesis, conclusion and result of experimentation. The list of ways writing benefits a society could go on forever. Writing is a valuable tool that can be used for good or evil and is necessary for a educated populous.
Sorry about all of the short posts, but I am kind of swamped in school and I don't have a lot of time to elaborate! ;)
