Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.


But do not be fooled. Good writing that satisfies most, meets even the exactitudes of the most scrupulous of guardians of what passes as that with the greatest excellence in the country of its origins, employs only the plainest of prose.

This is hard got, and requires the polishing even a French furniture maker, cutting and seemlessly fitting marquette, does not know. This labour is held from public view. The seven, tens of attempts even, burned to not betray what sweat and anxiety the writer gave to creating smooth, even silky, words upon a page.

The result seems to the reader to be effortless. The story slips off the page to be sipped by the eyes and reader’s brain with more savouring than the best of wines.

For such a writer never employs artifice. Gilt cannot cover gold.
