BAD WRITERS NECESSARY.  There will always have to be bad writers, for they reflect the taste of undeveloped, immature age groups, who have needs as much as the mature do.  If human life were longer, there would be more of the individuals who have matured than of the immature, or at least as many.  But as it is, the great majority die too young, which means there are always many more undeveloped intellects with bad taste.  Moreover, these people demand satisfaction of their needs with the greater vehemence of youth, and they force the existence of bad authors.
