on new policy making (a tip)

A tip to policy makers (in the USA, EU, etc) when you introduce new policy (especially radical/innovative/ground breaking) you do not make it "1000" pages (see eg what happened to the EU constitution)!


Because most of those who actually take the time and energy to read those "1000" pages will be its "enemies" and then good luck proving to the people that what is in those "1000" is "good" for them.

In other words:

Learn to draft policy and legislation in brevity and every day language. Easy? No. But no one said it was going to be easy!
