Are Ideas Supressed Sometimes "for The Good Of The Community"?

lawyers, construction and everyone I know of ( that’s human ) has psychological problems.
It’s part of what we are.

This “how dare you insinuate...” attitude seems very defensive and illogical.

I have noticed that your comments are very logically except when they deal with the scientific community. Free discussion about counterproductive elements in its composition is necessary for the community to remain efficient.

One mistake in 100 years is nothing to be afraid of.
Refusing to discuss the possibility will only indicate that there is a willingness to sacrifice logic “for the good of the scientific community”.

I can only hope for the “good of the community” as a whole, that this attitude is not prevalent.

I understand an alcoholic has problems admitting they have problems.
Preventing someone from asking them hard questions does not help them, it hurts them.
( Please don’t accuse me insinuating someone an alcoholic, this is only intended as an example.)
