I doomed mankind with a free text editor

For what it’s worth, the need for simplicity has been stressed in multiple languages and contexts. Hu Shih (a writer/philosopher of at least as much significance to the Chinese tradition as Orwell to the English) wrote in “8 Don’ts” in 1918:
“1. Don’t write anything which is without substance

3. Don’t use classical allusions
4. Don’t use cliches and worn-out phrases

7. Don’t imitate the ancients
8. Don’t avoid colloquial words and phrases”
