The word 'people' is so vague. District office clerks, school teachers, and one peasant out of thousand perhaps. The rest of the eighty million people, not only don't express their will, but haven't the faintess idea what it is to express their will about. What right do we then to say that it is the will of the people.

If goodness has a cause it is no longer goodness; if it has consequences, a reward, it is no longer goodness either.

Jordan Peterson's Editing Advice

  • Make your sentences shorter, eliminating all unnecessary words.  U should cut each sentence by 15-25%.
  • Make sure each word is precisely the right word to express your meaning.  Don't use vocabulary you haven't fully mastered.
  • Read each sentence aloud and listen...
  • Communicate your needs

    Most of us have been vague about what we really need in the moment.

    When you learn how to identify and express your needs clearly, you will be better understood and connect with the people in your life.

    Fear of criticism

    Many people are afraid to live their dreams for fear of what others may think and say about them.

    Making decisions based on what people think will debilitate you for the rest of your life.

    Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

    Ashley Anthony

    This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

    I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

    Jamyson Haug

    Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
