The overall point here by Harry Roberts is to keep the specificity on your selectors as low as you can. The end result of that effort is:

  1. More reusable styles.
  2. When you need to override that style, you have opportunities to nudge that specificity a bit higher while still being reusable and not fighting yourself.
