I don’t have it in front of me, but somewhere Medium does, literally, invite people onto the platform, telling them they can make money just by publishing ANYTHING here. The proof is, as they say, in the strawberry banana cake.

Then you have precisely the plethora of articles that editor was moaning over telling people how to make thousands a month by writing X. The traditional “self-help” come-on invented by Og Mandino (and, my apologies, the generations of hucksters, whose names presently escape me, who taught him to stare into mirrors and “will” themselves into wealth before him).

Medium is merely, then, the Left-side of Trumpism. All you have to do is read most of the poetry published here (as I have done in the past, to my regret) to know the quality of thought and soul present. Although no one, truly, can know a soul online...so I apologize for that extravagance.
