Is Python3 killing the Python language

Went online and read that zed shaw was going against the improvements made on python3, he went on to say that he can't teach py3 to total beginners cuz of some reasons. I'll keep the link below, if anyone wants to read. But my question is that for those of you familiar with py2 and py3, do u really think that py3 isn't that good for the python language.

python3 is easier because syntax is harmonized. It is always a balance between comfort of programmer (print w.o braces) and clear rules (functions always have braces) I think the article deals with problems of changing from python2 to python3. A complete beginner begins with Python3. ... no prob Legacy codes are mainly available for Python3 and if not - beginners usually deal with standard modules....no prob programming languages are in a changing process. thats a fact for alk of them. During that process they sometimes change their name. .... general but not python specific. Conclusion: If you wanna attrack attention in the sea of information you should wrap nonsense into scientific sounding words. Thats what the article does IMHO

Zed Shaw resume: mimimi, mimimi I wrote a book for Python 2 that is not selling any more for 30$, mimimi. mimimi, I used to be smart but realized I'm dumb mimimi. To cite some well known book: In the beginning it was only Assembler, and then man made Basic and it was good ;) If someone can learn assembler as first language it can learn any language!

yes, python 3 is killing the python language because of the undeveloped and unexplained tutorials on the internet.
