Both texts have a very tendentious opinion on the views of English spelling, but their opinions are very different.
Text 1 ”Proper spelling? Its Tyme to Let Luce”, an article from WIRED website, written by Anne Trubek, published January 31, 2012 claims that the incorrect grammar in English spelling is just a part of the evolution and should not be changed(Text 1, ll.49-54). She thinks that it would be great if we lose our idea of correct spelling, and it is just a fairly recent invention (text 1, ll.33-35). Therefore she thinks that we have to delete all grammar permissions and instead just let ourselves decide how we want to spell (text 1, ll.44-45). Furthermore she also thinks the spelling is a part of the technology evolution and we have

He totally agree with the English spelling is a terrible mess, but thinks that there must be some rules so we can be able to understand what we read, without having to stop over incorrect spelling(text 2, ll.1-4).

This would be more possible to change but on the other hand it would maybe confuse some old and young people, and create even more incorrect grammar because the spelling norms have been the same since 1953(Text 3, ll.5-8).
Any way we must agree with text 1, in that we need to follow the evolution and with the whole world changing by new technologies, the spelling must as well.

I think it would. In our lives we have to feel certain about some thinks, and one of them have to be your spelling and language. As text 2 says, English is a bitch to learn but once you master the core vocabulary, it’s pretty much automatic (Text 2, ll.130-135). Therefore I do not think that we should change the spelling norms because when you first master it, its pretty easy. In the same way it would also affect the whole world if the spelling norms where changed, because it is an international language that are spoken over the entire
