"I believe in “aristocracy” in so far as it is a fair word and it is OK for a democrat to use it."
I want to know if the above sentence is grammatically sound enough to pass as someone's goofy political idea?
Do you think "in so far as" serves its purpose well in creating the intended nuance, which I am not quiet sure what it is and which I can only guess at by looking at the context?
I thought of some alternatives but I don't know which one is the best.
only on the condition that
only to the extent that
as long as
in so far as
Would appreciate any insights from experts
It's possible to write 'insofar' as one word. I do.
