To tell the truth I would not be surprised if even most of the rest had problems understanding your writing.

There is little to understand.

Wrap-over a total dismissal of the issues raised in eloquent and high-sounding language, and thus distract from the real message which whittles down to:

We (I, "on behalf of" all those unnamed, uncounted, and mostly unaware) are right and you are wrong.

It is the ultimate manifestation of the 'Appeal to Authority fallacy'; by first establishing himself as that authority; thence dismissing all objections on the basis that: as he is that authority, all objections against his judgement must therefore be wrong.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
