So, "good minimalism" doesn’t require simply that we "be minimal". It requires that we correctly balance substance and space in a way that encourages evolutionary growth. It is possible to be minimal and rigid, which will lead to small ideas that can’t be developed any further. This is rarely what we want. Minimalism is one of these words (like "simple") that sound easy to do but actually require a lot of practice to get them right.
