If you can’t say it in 25 words or less

…do you really know what you’re talking about?

Neo-Neocon is a great writer and blogger, and mostly I love reading her stuff, especially her series A Mind is a Difficult Thing to Change. Great reading.

But like M. Scott Peck, I’m a firm believer that even the most difficult subjects can be explained with surprising brevity, if you really understand the topic. Physics? Physics is the study of how objects move, no more and no less. Peck himself decides on similar statements for psychology and theology.

So, Neo. Yes, you do write long articles, and yes they are beautifully written. But when are the words getting in the way? For me, that happens when I don’t have the time to ferret out the essence. At that point, too much has been written.
