Jeff the Baptist on language:
Should I become God Emperor of the Universe, I intend to make edicts to repair some of the great injustices in the World. My first law will be that laws applying to the general populace shall be written in a manner and language that is easily understandable by the general populace. This isn't hard to do, you just grab a bunch of congressional pages (who generally are in the middle of their college education), give them copies of proposed legislation, and ask them whether they can understand it. If not, you must rewrite it. Exceptions would be made for technical regulations which apply to professionals in a given field and not to the general populace as a whole.
There was a short-lived TV drama on a few years ago about a young and dashing US Senator. His first legislative act was to write a bill that would require all members of Congress to do their own personal income taxes themselves and without assistance. I really liked the idea. I'm sure that the tax code would be reduced to one-tenth of its length within a year of the passage of such a law.
I also like the idea of requiring members of Congress to read every word of every piece of legislation that they vote in favor of. Legislative activity would grind to almost a complete halt.
