    Yes. Yes to all of this. Young people often have a ferocious idealism. I know I did. But, as you get older, you start to see the complexity of things and just how interconnected and variable they are. You eventually have to let doubt into the room. Any sane person would.

    But, I also know I've read some pieces by younger designers that honor complexity, and that, in my mind, lends their opinions a lot of integrity. They might not have as much experience, but they are seeing clearly and learning to be articulate. That goes a long way. I want young designers going through that process. I needed it. Why wouldn't they?

    I also have to remind myself to give people more credit: readers can sniff out a farce and are not shy to label something as such.
