I don't think all things can be explained in simple terms and nor should we try to do this all the time. People have their own unique ways of expressing themselves and I'm not sure if there is an academic rabbit-hole, so to speak.

Knowledge doesn't move in a single direction with a definite end-point and this should be obvious once you see how philosophers have drastically varying degrees of understanding among people.

Now when you get into fields like psychology which is intertwined with media, as well as the State and their desire to control bodies and the movement of thought these can be valid points to raise.

tl;dr I think making a blanket statement about any writing that doesn't conform to the desires of the reader at hand doesn't make any sense. We may as well react negatively against any new formulations of thought because it's all just a bunch of nonsense, right?
