Not certain what earlier words Peter is agreeing with, but I agree with 
what Peter himself said -- perhaps edited to say:

   "The [primary objectives should be] to persuade people how accessible
      Mathematica [can be], not how incredibly learned and expert [its]
      users need to be -- **and then to make it that accessible**."
