41. Writing unambiguously for a mass audience ranges from difficult to impossible

Reading is an act of interpretation, people interpret things differently from one another and English is a slippery language with many shades of meanings on words.

It's almost as difficult to say just one thing as it is to do just one thing, if you walk in one direction you quite literally push the world in the other direction.
