comment The dream of declarative programming
Sounds like you're asking the system to implement a sorting algorithm. Declarative programming is already possible (specially in functional languages), but it's not like this. Examples of real life declarative programming: list comprehensions. Also look at things like lodash.com/docs

comment Is Object Oriented Programming a solution to complexity?
@MichaelBorgwardt, I know, that's why I remarked that lisp really is used by people, so it's not just some ivory tower stuff.

comment Is Object Oriented Programming a solution to complexity?
@MichaelBorgwardt, mainstream adoption corrupts a useful idea because many people in the main stream don't understand what the idea is all about, so when you try to search for what OOP is, you see various misconceptions by various people. LISP still is used, but only by a minority, so it's less likely that the original ideas suffered from the corruption caused by pointy haired bosses not having a clue what it's all about.

comment Why does the Lisp community prefer to accumulate all the parentheses at the end of the function?
What editor moves by s-expressions? More specifically, how do I get vim to do that?
