The Writer

Writing should never be watered down to include more readers. This is not to say one should make their writing unnecessarily cryptic, but that writing should not sacrifice its meaning as to not ostracize readers who disagree. One should write to reveal the truth, and sadly, the truth divides us. The deniers of the truth, those who accept the easiest read and not the most rational, cannot be appealed to. One need only argue with the common man to realize that arguments do not sway people, that evidence has no meaning unless one is already biased to accept evidence. In general, a writer should make his readers think, not agree. A good writer is one who writes with meaning only to find the world against him, and he should say, “good”. Those who deny intellectual growth at the cost of their fellow man’s suffering deserve to be made to feel admonished. Writing should not be done with pleasing most in mind, for most are scum, and most should be displeased with good writing.

And next, the question of whether or not the writer is helping man with his words, or hurting him.

It is arbitrary, and this is to be written about as well.

    Many hideous things have been done for the sake of beautiful thoughts.

    Do you make more than 350k a year? If not, you’re part of the “scummy masses” in the minds of the rich elite.

    Can you run 40 yards in 4 seconds? Chuck a football from one side of a field to another–perfectly placed, too? If not, you’re part of the “scummy masses” in the minds of professional athletes.

    You prize your thoughts. Alright, good. How far have you gone with them? What sort of degrees do you have? Plenty of academics with PhDs wouldn’t take you seriously without SOMETHING to prove you’re intellectually involved. That means reading others and investing in the history of the field. Otherwise, you’re just part of the “scummy masses” who think they know better without putting in the necessary work. Especially now when degrees are so easy to earn.

    It’s much harder to praise than to criticize–one has to pay attention. More importantly, one has to confer love.

    We should use our highest thoughts to admire life, the “masses” included.

      I think you have missed the point. Most are scum, because most do not want to hear something that challenges their way of thinking. I’ve said nothing about salary, degrees, athletic accomplishments, etc.

      Thank you for proving my point! 🙂

        I’m trying to give you a little bit of perspective. You, who have done absolutely nothing noteworthy in life, are judging billions of people just because they don’t scratch their chins at your adolescent thoughts and go, “Hmmm.” The reason I brought up “salary, degrees, athletic accomplishments, etc.,” is to show you just how scummy YOU are in the eyes of others.

        Once you get started on who’s crap and who’s not…well no one comes out of it looking pristine. Everybody gets shit thrown on them, so why bother with all that?
