Thank you so much for the suggestion, Keith. I will be watching that documentary, hopefully this weekend! I look forward to it.

You make a great point about shrinking down what is a much larger topic into a far too condensed article. However, this is the nature of most articles. It is sort of part and parcel with the format of an article. For a plethora of written pieces, they could easily be expanded into a book. For the purpose of Medium though (and most publications), things need to be shortened, condensed, and trimmed down. That is what an article is. A piece on a topic, a shorter and sweeter read on it than a book would offer.

So while I completely agree with you about the article being much wider than the topic was given its due here, that was done on purpose. I could not possibly have covered it all, as you said perfectly.

Thank you very much for reading though, and for your recommendation!
