In other words, every new Python programmer must be sat down with a
massive manual and ordered to read it until his eyes bleed and he goes
off and finds some other language to use.

Is it better for Python if we ensure that all Python code written is
written perfectly, or is it better to allow people to write code, use
code, learn code, and then later on, learn to do things more

You really need to learn the difference between language requirements
and stylistic advice. You're trying to turn the latter into the
former, but there is a good reason for language flexibility.

Why am I responding to these trolls? And why am I being so polite as I
do so? Rick, put up or shut up. Get some code down or quit talking.
(Oh and those are not exclusive ors.)
