It sounds like we should keep in mind one of the fundamental laws of the
universe: the Law of Conservation of Difficulty. If you make difficult
things simple, the difficulty appears somewhere else. Maybe Scala is complex
(in some sense). Perhaps that is because it removes the need for complex
frameworks. By the Law of Conservation of Difficulty, this is to be
expected so we should just move on.
I'm kidding of course... well, mostly.
