In Ong's writing his main argument is the language and tool that we use literacy as. It is such a prominent and relevant source to everything that we do and it helps us understand deeper into topics and break them down to their core. Ong's statement that "since literacy is regarded as so unquestionably normative, and normal, the deviancy of illiterates tends to be thought of as a lack of a simple mechanical skill" shows that literacy really is ubiquitous in our culture today. He later continues to say "We view in better perspective the world of writing in which we live, see better what this world really is, and what functionally literate human beings really are", expressing what insights the world of literacy brings to light.
