Nobody can argue about style and taste, but to be honest what you want
is not a minimalist way but grossly waste full, sorry that is my
opinion so far, if I'm missing something please explain it to me.

Well, I'd just use auto-fill-mode (the text is filled within 70 chars,
but this is customisable), type C-x 3 (and possible use follow-mode,
with the added advantage of having even more usable screen estate for
the same text).
