Does Python really follow its philosophy of "Readability counts"?

"Programming languages -do not- bare meaning to such systems nor have
an impact on their suitability or unsuitability" (I presume you mean
"bear" not "bare") is a far stronger and stupider statement than one
about Python's suitability or lack thereof.  Most informed users would
agree that Python is more suitable than some languages for that sort
of application and less suitable than others.  Only a fool would
propose that all languages are equally suitable.
