commonsense briskness


Senior Member
Hi, I'm asking for help again! "They (satires) are stimulating and refreshing because with commonsense briskness they brush away illusions and secondhand opinions". What does it mean by "commonsense briskness"? It's a sentence from Satiric Literature. Looking forward to your early replies!

    They are brisk, in the sense that they move fast and are direct, and they use common sense.

    The satires have the quality of briskness, characterised by common sense.
