    I see what you mean! The writing is strangely stylish but includes some truly weird expressions, such as:

    more and more dilemmas are uprising and creeping sluggishly​
    murdered to death​
    the abolition of existence​
    :eek:

    I suspect that the stylish parts have been simply "borrowed" from other writers.

    But there are some intriguing insights:

    Yes, murdered to death is much like saying that a baby has been born to llfe – pointlessly expressing the same idea twice.

    A limerick from the Wikipedia page on tautology:

    There once was a fellow from Perth​
    Who was born on the day of his birth.​
    He got married, they say​
    On his wife's wedding day,​
    And died when he quitted the earth.​

    Is this a tautology?

    Those who are not in this stadium definitely are out of it.

    We have a football commentator who is a big fan of tautologies:)
