Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the warning I infer from publicity about conflict among the factions who claim ownership--much less possession-- of the information is,
orthodoxy or heterodoxy
is an essential profession of political agreement among people regardless of the scope of their organization, or domains of purported mastery. Withholding quantities and significance of information from interested yet excluded parties is a purposeful action in any case. That is control of a social structure which preserves uncertain divisions of labor and values of knowledge.

Latin literacy or hominin speciation, for example, is a quite esoteric occupation. Though the former has fallen into disuse (Vatican II), the latter still preoccupies the minds of millions "laity" seeking a rationale for natural laws of evolutionary progress, intelligence, prosperity and primacy.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
