I disagree. All I can do is provide information that is correct, accessible,
and readable. I cannot make my readers understand. I can help, not make.
Readers are not just passive lumps. They must participate in this
experience. They must apply the information I provide to their situation. If
they successfully do that, they have acquired knowledge. I'm just here to
make it easier for them.
