From the Tao Te Ching (verse 81)
True words are not beautiful.
Beautiful words are not true.
The good are not argumentative.
The argumentative are not good.
Knowers do not generalize.
Generalizers do not know.
I am thinking this goes counter to everything I've ever done in my career. 1.) Journalists try to make their words as true and beautiful as possible. 2.) We try to be argumentative, so far as showing both sides of an argument make it fair. 3.) And we think we know things because we are such generalists. I was a GA (general assignment) reporter for a few years before I started specializing in tech.
Expert for a day in anything, and that seemed good at the time.
