Reading as inherently elitist in that very few people, at any given time and in any given society, are interested or capable of reading a sentence grammatically correctly; in the same sense any intellectual discussion is elitist due to the same condition. The notion of mass appeal is absurd in this context and the notion of tailoring a work to accord to a common denominator is akin to some sort of blasphemy or the burning of a national heritage forest.

Humans may have been inadvertently eradicating all genius since commercial publishing occurred, whilst the published author, touted as 'expertise' in this or that, is already decimated by the process of publishing first of all and in their main arguments are themselves writing 'to' the masses of whose impression is given them by that same product of publishing; whilst in their own personality they are merely an imitation of a writer and their audience are engaged in catharsis and vicarious living, as to resemble a sex pervert as their truest common denomination.

      Exactly, you become confused like a dog barking at its own reflection in a mirror, it is a crul thing to subject you to, in my opinion, yet, do you know, thereare those who would use you as a straw-stuffed man to fill the seats in their audience; to play you like an instrument and trick you into applauding this and loving that, hating this and leaping to your feet in furor at that.

    That is not elitist unless it is elitist to hone any skill to an above average level, and "genius" does mean something falls within the strict confines of your own personal aesthetic sense.

      > personal aesthetic
      I don't think we're talking about the same thing. It's not a matter of personal taste whether a man invents a spaceship or not, but of the invention being disregard for not falling within the strict confines of a personal aesthetic sense,
      e.g. we can have world peace / if we kill this group
      the premise is correct but the aesthetic is undesirable so the result is unattainable.

        Literature does not measure genius in spaceships and all you are really sarying is "i don't like contemporary literature."

          Wait, no, that's still not what's being said. I **agree** with you on your point, but your point applies **to** the publisher - or to the commercial aspects of publishing: to water-down a thing for the sake of maximum possible appeal is to make a good writer seem babyish and to make more complicated ideas be impossible to be conveyed **if** the writer and publisher are aiming for that wide shot rather than the more precise or specific.

          So I'm saying that there may very well be lots of geniuses solving problems, etc. etc., but that the publisher isn't interested due to (what could be described as) aesthetics.

            The publishers were never interested, they are only interested in what sells. Also, say what you mean in the first place instead of putting so much effort into sounding **smart**.*

            I think you inadvertently proved my point.. although it' more about english publishing at this point ..the idea that speaking properly is "trying to sound smart" is quite hideous; not being able to tell the difference between jargonism and precision reveals illiteracy in the first place.

            Still,
            It may be that it's just a western press thing, I'm reminded that the language constraints and narrative expectations of "spoon-feeding" don't exist so much elsewhere... australian lit for instance, as well as the translations anyway of other languages which aren't so 'dumbed down'.

            The english language literature is dull and boring and predictable and is made to be so for the sake of broadest possible readership, and that was the entire point being conveyed here:

            Reading as inherently elitist in that very few people, at any given time and in any given society, are interested or capable of reading a sentence grammatically correctly; in the same sense any intellectual discussion is elitist due to the same condition. The notion of mass appeal is absurd in this context and the notion of tailoring a work to accord to a common denominator is akin to some sort of blasphemy or the burning of a national heritage forest.

            And yes,
            > they are only interested in what sells.
            that is why "Humans may have been inadvertently eradicating all genius since commercial publishing occurred,"

            As I think more about it..
            >The english language literature is dull and boring and predictable
            it really does resemble that "dumb egoism" that Huxley mentioned; where the verystupid and illiterate (intellectually incapable, not just can't read properly) are coddled into thnking theyre veyr smart by exposure to an incredibly low bar, and end up as brash egotists saying things like,

            Who cares what other people do or think? If you are reading for appearance, you are a pseud. Simple as

            That is not elitist unless it is elitist to hone any skill to an above average level, and "genius" does mean something falls within the strict confines of your own personal aesthetic sense.

            well if that's the only response, it's not a response not all. An accusation of egoism; accusing me of what I observe in the word. What an unoriginal ad hominem put-down, guilty egotist.

            There was nothing else to say that I did not already say. All you said in OP is "Just trust me. bros. Discuss." What have you even read of contemporary literature?

            Prose is any writing which more or less follows the grammatical conventions of speech, has nothing to do with the length. What that anon is saying is you used a lot of words to say very little.
