This sophomoric oversimplification of the work in question is typical of today's
youth, unwilling to listen for more than half a minute, unable to read and
extract content, and even less capable of writing anything that effectively
communicates a well-congealed thought. If the actual work had been digested no
person with three grey-cells would have drawn such a conclusion.
