Most people will agree with you about BS, obfuscation, pomposity and so forth but although Orwell may have said
Never use a long word when a short one will do
he clearly did not mean
Never use a long word.
As far as I know, he never said
Why use a long word when you can use a lot of short ones instead?
How many short words would I need in order to suggest that your premise is an absurd extrapolation?
