... typically, those in academia, e.g. those wearing Dr tags, are the worst fucks that damage society by their visions/ideology and power. (these elite group would be second to bad politicians)

one fancy thought about fixing the academecians fuck is to take away all their rights to speak/publish/influence anything in a field for which the person does not have certified credit. For example, Mathematician wouldn't be allowed to speak on any issue about economics, society, policies, physics, ... or any social issues related to these fields. Say, if a mathmatician is speaking at a conference, say a university graduation event or some world mathematician day or award event or whatnot, his speech may not contain anything serious on issues. He can either just speak about his highly technical topic on some particular sub branch of math he has expertise, and or he can say non-content happy nothings like howdy and good day and thanks to the crowd to enhance the celebration or whatever is the event's air. He should be allowed to speak with due respect only of tech math topics, and only within their particular field of which the person has certified credit (e.g. degree, honors, awards).

Similarly, this applies to all academecians, professors of different fields. In short, this is kinda like a extreme form of technocracy, you get to speak with credit only when you have the proper credential for it.

in my opinion, even recently we had iraq war due to George Bush motherfucker, but on the whole, humanity has progressed tremendously in the past 2 decades, largely due to the incredible communication technologies, in particular the internet (e.g. roughly by chronologically in the past 2 decades: email, USENET, FAQs, mailing lists, web forums, instant messing, wikis, blogs, social networks, and now video blogs and twitters and voice/video over internet).
