... and many other truistic true-style truisms.
Some of these guys are in Shoah business. Other guys are just in show business. Whether academia, law, politics or some other flim-flammery like astrophysics, it's all just different ways to avoid having to work at a real day job.
I always think of Yoda when these guys start to pitch this hooey. "Enlightened, I am." Yes, I bet you are, Yoda.
Increasingly, people are realizing that the majority of all tenured, institutionalised (!) academia generates effectively zero, nothing, nada, zilch and in return they spend their entire lives in idleness at taxpayer expense. Formal academia is high quality, complex welfare for people otherwise no more employable than most bums and vagrants. People like this never make anything better. They just make such a wild display of sophistry and gibberish that they stun others into assuming they must be smart.
It bugs me in particular this whole business of post-plagiarism for the past 38,0000 years. The Neanderthal hybrids have been in the trenches with the soldiering iron in hand all these millennia and when they come up with new technologies, be it a new flint arrow head or the cell phone, there is always a Sapiens in the wings claiming credit for it. This is not a trivial phenomenon. For every real Neo-hybrid innovator, there are at least a thousand people taking accolades for his work. I just see it as the Philo Farnsworth/William Shockley effect over and over again. Whether it's a Nobel peace prize for Barack Obama or Al Gore, you see this tragic circumstance repeated again and again. In addition to world peace, Al Gore also invented the internet. See what I'm talking about? Jacob means Swindler in Hebrew. It's a person who gets by as a result of leeching off somebody else. Does God love the parasitic and infertile over the creative and innovative? There's something to think about.
