Very true @Western0bserver , this is most pronounced in how the science establishment has been manipulated for decades...the INSIDIOUS , rigged system of peer review and the emphasis on "scientific consensus" (why should the principle of majority wins , need to apply in science ??) has stymied and suppressed many scientific breakthroughs from bursting out into the mainstream...this is the HIGHEST opportunity cost for mankind !
