Some know this, and some don't.
A lot of academic blind spots can be understood by the five monkeys parable (pic related).
In academic discourse, it's important to discourage students and others from pursuing time-wasting areas of research.
The best are quick dead-ends, the worst are complex catacombs, all tunnels leading to dead ends, the kind of maze from which some never emerge.
Painting the truthful paths of study, e.g. race realism, as a maze of dead-ends, is how knowledge is hidden.
As a student becomes a teacher, they transfer the "knowledge" of these "dead-end" pursuits to their students, ad infinitum. >selection pressure on conformity to the prevailing worldview or blind certainty towards ones own lack of bias to manifest among (but not at the extremes) more intelligent people.
Ironically enough, bringing in evolutionary psychology is an unnecessary confounding variable, when you can see it as basic pedagogical techniques either intentionally abused or the echos of previous abuse. >constrained by higher principles or stringent ethical standards
Many view themselves as conforming to higher principles and stringent ethical standards.
These standards have simply been corrupted into monsters by abuses of pedagogy.
The existence of "parasites and fraudsters" is unnecessary—not that they don't exist.
