Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The neurons are up to speed after a nap. Whatever good that will do.
I'm tempted to point out that your "one" and "two" are not at all mutually exclusive, but could easily be sequential, but I know that wasn't where you were aiming. Granted.
Yes, the "channels" do seem to support a "Denial by Heresy" verdict, sentenced to (fail to)deal with the cleanup on an ad-hoc basis.
And yes- if you read my diary, "The best and the brightest" -I think I called it here- you will know I share your view of the limiting nature of deep, committed knowledge in a "field" (as described by Bourdieu) as more of a source of blindness than an aid to vision, if the thing you try to focus on is outside the permitted vocabulary of the field.
I've commented often about that, as in "Krugnered it"-(my newly invented verb for that very event). One could also say, perhaps, "-they came close, but in the end they Bakered the data).
But there remains the "blazing saddles" moment---

"Everybody freeze, or the nigger gets it!"

By devouring the 90%, they insure their own demise.

Why is that, prey tell?  

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
