I struggle often, but when I do the payoff is sometimes really good. With some good work, its important to be hard and tangled, because the struggle to understand what is really being said is the same as the process of coming to understand something outside of common sense. Regular ways of using language often reproduces the values of the world as it is, and challenging fundamental ways we understand words and meaning and being is often done pretty well by forcing people to engage with texts as tough texts.

Plenty writing is obtuse and bullshit for no good reason though, I assume.
