You’re right about the 110% part! The sad part is that he’s not naturally a good communicator. I might even say he’s a really bad communicator. As a philosopher, he’s got some genuinely useful and powerful thoughts, but he is positively abysmal in communicating it quickly and effectively. I’d attribute some of it to what I’ve seen as his eschewing “the man”, “the system”, governments, and even editors. Of all the interesting writers I know, he could certainly benefit from working with a great editor if he could bring himself to trust one.

Sadly, until that day, we’re just left with sifting through some chaff to find the wheat in his work.
