If we all removed just one brown brick of pedantry each day from the road we are traveling, the roads would not be strewn, as they are, with brown bricks of pedantry.

Pedantry
/ˈpɛdəntri/ (n.)

1. The resting state — the happy place — of any legal eagle.
2. Courtesy of the JC’s tenth law of worker entropy; the rule of collective agency, in which it is understood that all agents must, in the service of a common principal, tolerate each others’ pedantry, the instinctive starting point of any agent when deciding how to act.
